I hadn't been back to the Science museum for 15-20 years so was looking forward to seeing what it had to offer today's visitor.
We went on what I thought would be a quiet term-time Wed in February. But, no - there were huge groups...More
Passionate about science and engineering, not visited the science museum for 20 plus years. Had a couple of hours to kill in London so thought I would pop in. A totally over emphasis on space and flight. Lots and lots of stairs and corridors that...More

First thing I have to mention about this museum is that is free. Second, it’s right next to the Natural History Museum, which is amazing if you want to spend a day in museums. It has a lot of interesting content ranging from science, to...More

Visited the science museum whilst on a long weekend in London. It was my first visit as an adult and wondered whether there would be enough interesting themes and exhibits to keep me occupied for a few hours. Pleased to say there was and then...More
I visited a bunch of museum around Europe but the Science museum is one missing in my list. This one is great. Some parts were closed because of redecorating but still is large and great! See cars, airplanes, the space and many more!
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall) such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming
and cosmopolitan as it is reserved and residential, South Kensington is always a hit with visitors.

It’s better to go on weekdays first thing in the morning (opens at 10:00 am). That gets you in early together with whatever people might be there at that time and lots of time to take breaks and get around the entire museum... More
