Science Museum - Introducing Voyages: our new photography exhibition with Anderson & Low

Sail through our ship model collection in Voyages

Voyages | Media Space Gallery | Until 25 June

'One of the singular parallels in the history of science and art is that one can look at the world in a different way, and reimagine what it might be.' - Anderson & Low
Fine art photographers Anderson & Low bring their latest series of photographs to the Science Museum this spring.
Inspired by our much-loved collection of historic ship models which are now in Blythe House, our storage facility in London, Anderson & Low's photographs use only ambient light and were shot through the protective plastic sheeting which covers the models in storage.
Turner-esque in their painterly quality, this series reimagines the models as fantastical epic voyagers.

The Terminator and RoboCop Double Bill
Friday 31 March

Visit the Science Museum after-hours for a movie night like no other with a double bill of The Terminator and RoboCop. 
We'll be joined by Dr Emine Yilmaz, Faculty Fellow at the Alan Turing Institute and Associate Professor at UCL’s Department of Computer Science, for a discussion exploring the question: Could Skynet come true?

Space Descent VR with Tim Peake
Open next week

"As close as you can get to the real thing with your feet still on the ground  a brilliant experience!" - Tim Peake
In this immersive experience, you can take the 400km journey from the International Space Station back to Earth, the same journey made by Tim Peake when he returned in his Soyuz capsule.


Until 3 September
We're opening Robots late on Friday evenings until 22.00. With the Robots Café serving drinks including wine and beer, what better way to spend your Friday? Make sure you stop by our fantastic Robots shop too!
