Science Museum

South Kensington is the place-to-be at London, United Kingdom for museum enthusiasts. People get here mostly for the Natural History Museum and the Victoria & Albert. In between these giants and their fantastic architectures it is easy to overlook another pearl: the Science Museum.

The museum was founded in 1857 and was by that time named South Kensington Museum (and part of the V&A). On five levels the museum exhibits items like steam engines, planes or space rockets and topics like astronomy, electronics, photography, aviation and meteorology. It doesn’t have so many items to experiment yourself (like for example at the phaeno in Wolfsburg, Germany) – but it is worth a visit. It is free of charge but you will be asked for a donation.
