Opening Thursday evening, October 24

You know the Science Museum is a great place to explore and discover. But did you know that our scientists are doing research in our labs, AND they’re conducting fieldwork all over the world? It’s true - and this fall, we’re telling you all about it! 

Stop by a new space on level 4 called Science Superheroes. In this continuously evolving experience, we’ll introduce you to our scientists, show you the cool projects they’re working on, and even give you a sneak peek at items from our collection that help illustrates their superhero stories.
