Science Museum  Welcome to the home of human ingenuity.

Today we got to welcome the one millionth visitor to Wonderlab: The @equinor Gallery! 🎉
🎉
Sofia and her family visited Wonderlab for inspiration for a school project: “At school, I’m doing an exhibition about science so I came here to learn more about it. Everything about the museum is really fun and interactive, and you just learn so much.”
🎉

Wonderlab is our interactive gallery which opened in late 2016. The gallery features over 50 science and maths exhibits with our Explainers on hand to perform live experiments, shows and demonstrations.
