I would say this was one of the better museums within London. It was free with the London Pass. It's a nice museum and quite large. It had a great mix of exhibits that interest kids as well as adults. Great mix of practically everything science related and has about 4-5 floors of exhibits and things. I think we started on the top floor which has a lot of things you can touch and turn and spin...more

Unfortunately, I wouldn't go back. We went on the weekend and we ended up there at around 2:30pm. The tables were not all full but we had to wait quite a while to get seated (even though we saw waiters standing around talking to each other).

The Science Museum is a beautiful building filled with brilliantly preserved...more

The best way to see the Science Museum is going to the Science Museum Lates. On the last Wednesday of each month you can go after hours and avoid all the kids and the panic of their normal opening hours. They hold special exhibitions and activities, workshops to make things, science demonstrations and talks. You can also have a few drinks (bring cash) and explore the normal areas of the museum...more
