London's Museums: the Science Museum

I am not a geeky person and at school,
my grades in science left a lot to be desired. 

So, when Mr K (the family's geek) 
suggested going to the Science Museum, 
I contemplated with dread a day full of boring stuff. 

I couldn't be more wrong.

Science Everywhere

The Science Museum is the place
to see and celebrate human ingenuity in all its forms. 

From Stone Age hand tools to real spacecrafts,  
and Foucault's pendulum to Pasteur's silkworms, 
you won't know where to turn your head first.

We really enjoyed the Flight gallery,
with the hot air balloons & WWI aeroplanes,
and the Making the World Modern gallery
with the gorgeous vintage cars & steam engines.

The Science Museum is super child friendly  
with specially designed zones for children of all ages.

The Launchpad, with its 50 interactive exhibits & live shows, 
introduces to kids the world of physics.

The Pattern Pod encourages the little ones 
to touch, play, experiment 
and get familiar with the world around them. 

In the Garden, under 5s can explore 
floating, shadows, reflections & music.

  1. I agree, the Science Museum is great for kids. Getting them past the gift shop and that moving Dalek is a challenge though!

  2. I love the Science Museum! We are taking our eldest in the summer.

    1. I'm sure he'll have lots of fun, there are so many things to do & see at the Science Museum!

  3. Isn't it fascinating? We were there last weekend and the kids finished by asking how soon we could go back!

    1. I bet they had a great time! What I love about the Science Museum is that is as much fun for grown-ups too! We'll be going back soon too :)

  4. I love the Science Museum, although I went with my friend in December to see the Large Hadron Collider exhbition - less child-friendly! Have you been to the hands-on section of the Natural History Museum? Amazing.

    1. That looks so interesting. I'll make sure we go there next time we visit the NHM, thank you so much for you suggestion!

  5. My son and I love hanging out in The Garden... Mummy is also known to take advantage of the free WiFi... :)
