Explore how and why scientists and artists have attempted to recreate humans through robotics with Robots at the Science Museum.

Travel back through 500 fascinating years of robotic history, as more than 100 humanoid robots go on display, tracing our obsession with re-creating ourselves. Discover the latest developments as robots become increasingly more human, from their physical appearance, to learning from mistakes and showing emotions, and imagine a future as robots become increasingly part of our lives.

Highlights of the exhibition include a 16th-century articulated iron manikin, a tall and glamorous 1950s robot, and one of the first robots to walk on two legs, as well as 12 working robots with which to interact.
