Virtual gallery tour
We are relying on technology more than ever to stay in touch with the world.
Wonderful 3D objects
We now have lots of 3D objects in our online collection for you to explore. You can rotate the objects and zoom in to get a closer look.
Try this artistic hands-on science experiment. All you need is milk and food colouring. We think it’s great fun and very visual and the best part is that you’ll create something unique every time.
Playing with cornflour slime is great if you love using your sense of touch. It’s a non-Newtonian fluid which means it can behave like a solid or a liquid.

How you can support the Science Museum
Our mission is to inspire the next generation with science but with our museum doors closed we need your help to continue this work.
And whilst our doors are closed, our incredible collection – and range of activities and learning resources – remain open to you online.
