Three... two... one... blast off on a journey through the amazing world of space as you discover the answers to all those mind-boggling questions! Can a rocket really get to space in less than 13 minutes, and why would you drink prawn cocktail through a straw?!
You can experience this and much more as we take you through the first mission to the Moon with lots of fascinating facts and fun along the way in the hilarious Spaced Out! tour. This is just one of the exciting free interactive tours for families available at the Science Museum in London. We promote the importance of families learning together and feel that this is a great way for young children to get the most out of their visit to the Science Museum. It also means that children and adults can have fun together!
Now, on the first Saturday of every month we have a BSL interpreter alongside the events to interpret for deaf and hard-of-hearing visitors. The Science Museum advocates inclusive learning, so we encourage members of the deaf community to come along and take part in these events, whatever your level of hearing. The BSL days are popular and ideal if you just want to turn up – no booking is needed. We can offer you an alternative and fun way to enjoy science through tours and storytellings. (Find out more, here ).
Additionally, have you ever wondered what it might be like to spend a night at the Museum? Yes, literally spend a night at the Museum?! The Science Museum offers an all-night extravaganza with a scientific twist. Science Night provides education and fun for children and accompanying adults, through an evening of fantastic activities rounded off by camping in the Science Museum overnight. Sounds fun? Of course it is! If you need a BSL interpreter to be available to accompany your overnight stay all you need to do is let us know. Owing to popular demand Science Nights are now booked up until June 2010 - however lines will reopen in March 2010 to take bookings for July onwards. The Science Night booking number is 020 7942 4777.
Why not come along and visit the Science Museum to experience our events and tours for yourself? There’s plenty of fun and enjoyment to be had all around, and entry to the Museum and family events is free*… so what are you waiting for?
