The Science Museum of London is next to the Natural History Museum, the two are the same. The Science Museum favors popular science education for young people. The space museum on the first floor is colorful, and there are many interactive areas suitable for children. A large number of primary school students will gather here. The area on the second floor showcases the scientific and technological strength of Britain as the birthplace of the global industrial revolution. The first steam engine invented by Watt is particularly precious. I don’t remember how many floors the earthquake and volcano simulation area are. In short, you can take children for a tour, and travelers who are short on time can ignore this attraction.
Fans of airplanes, cars, steam engines and all kinds of machinery can't miss the London Science Museum! Almost all museums in London are free, and the Science Museum is no exception. The number of people in the Science Museum is much smaller than that in the next door. I was shocked to show a bunch of airplanes of various ages. There were even cross-sections of the equipment and explanations of various internal parts. It was really enjoyable. In addition to a bunch of magical and perfect exhibits, there are also a lot of interactive knowledge exhibition halls. You can learn a lot of natural knowledge just by playing Q&A with the computer, and it will never be boring. When I visited, many children played games and studied in it, which was really great. The Science and Technology Museum is not a well-known tourist attraction, but if time permits, it is very suitable for exploring the secrets of the Science and Technology Museum. You can learn a lot of knowledge, at least just watching cars and airplanes is very worthwhile!

Fantastic free museum with a little something for everyone. I went for their adults-only Late event, held every last Friday of the month and it was a blast! Every month there is a theme and this month's was gaming to correspond with their current exhibit on the history of video games. It was a fantastic night with group video games, really interesting lectures, a silent disco, free tours and more. I would definitely go back during regular hours as there was so much I didn't see!
One of the free attractions in London and definitely worth visiting. For all ages and something to learn for everyone. Anywhere where you walk from Stevenson's Rocket to Fleming's Penicillin in 20 steps is somewhere special. One suggestion is of they could expand their interactive exhibits. The ones they have are great but always busy.Overall a must-visit when in London. Kids loved it.
