view web site ›'s insider take:

Covering all aspects of science, technology, and medicine, the Science Museum is the star of the trio of museums on Exhibition Road (the others are the V&A and the Natural History Museum). It contains over 300,000 items, including the only Black Arrow rocket in existence, examples of Charles Baggage's attempts at the first computer dating back to the 1830s, the Apollo 10 command module, and an Iron Age skeleton. It's big on interactive exhibits: In the SimEx Simulator, experience an explosion in space or a dinosaur ride. The mulituser game In Future is a window into what the world could become. For the grown-ups, there's the Dana Center, a café bar and venue where you can join a heated debate on the controversial side of science, or see a heart-bypass operation shown live via video link.

Free admission.
