Wonderlab at the Science Museum
A couple of weeks ago whilst we were in London, we headed to the Science Museum and spent the day in the Wonderlab. Described as: “Revealing the beauty of the science and maths that shape our everyday lives, this unmissable experience will ignite your curiosity, fuel your imagination and inspire you to see the world around you in new and exciting ways.”
We sure did have a great time there, there are over 50 exhibits, shows and demonstrations to enjoy. The Wonderlab is spread across seven different zones, there’s loads of opportunity to get hands on with real scientific phenomena. You can take part in live experiments at the Chemistry Bar, see lightning strike before your eyes, play with forces on giant slides or travel through space under a canopy of stars.
There are lots of amazing Science Demonstrations, Minime even got chosen to participate. Some of the shows currently on are Flash, Bang, Wallop; the Wonder Show; The Rocket Show and Prime Time. They are all lead by experienced explainers and last around 20 minutes.
The Wonderlab is open daily but is very popular so it is worth booking a time slot in advance, they recommend after 1.30pm to avoid school trips. A day pass for the Wonderlab is £8 and you can come and go as you please, so if you want a break you could then wonder into the cafe or look around the Science Museum. The Natural History Museum is located just around the corner so you could really make a day of it!
We really had a fabulous time in the Wonderlab and the kids would highly recommend it.
