I’ve been to the Science Museum in London a couple of times before, but only for a quick look. This time we could spend as many hours as we wanted, as we were on holiday. Hubby likes science museums and we’ve been to MOSI in Manchester (amazing) and Thinktank in Birmingham (poorly made and maintained).
The Science Museum in London is free, although they ask for donations, and it’s in a very good location, in South Kensington, near V&A and Natural History Museum. It took us a few hours to visit it and it was interesting. I had to make a small selection of pictures, as hubby took a lot of them, as usual.
This is a piece of the Moon. It looks like a regular rock, but it’s so impressive that it’s from another world.
This jumper is made from Dolly’s wool, the first clone of an adult animal. It was made in 1998. The design of the jumper is appropriate, isn’t it?
The dots on the screen where moving as the child moved. We wanted to try it too, but the kids were excited about it and we didn’t want to spoil their fun.
There are some games in the “Who am I?” section and they are fun to try.
Here we are in the Flight section. I like airplanes and find them interesting after a visit to RAF Cosford a few years ago.
The one that I found the most interesting was the section from a Boeing 747 Jumbo Jet (in the back).
