"We love the Science Museum!…"
We live near London and have been to the Science Museum a few times and its simply fab. Five floors of exhibits with something for everyone and even on the most busy day during the school holidays you can still find quiet bits. Our most recent visit was during the Oct half-term and the kids' bits in the basement and on the third floor were mobbed, but the rest of the museum was a real pleasure to walk around and the only thing we queued for was the tornado flight simulator.
I also have to commend them on their excellent food outlets serving a wide variety of really nice food AND two indoor picnic areas. Its so, incredibly, free to get in! 10/10.Read moreLess

"Great new Typhoon simulators at the Science Museum…"
The Science Museum and Metropolis Entertainment recently launched their new Eurofighter Typhoon simulators. It consists of two simulators: the first takes the passengers on a ride through North Wales and the Lake District. Unlike the other Typhoon simulator, it doesn't require passengers to wear a seatbelt and takes passengers on a relaxing, yet visually impressive, flight.
The second simulator, the 360, is more appropriate for the adrenaline junkies of the family. You fly in all directions (I spent about half the flight upside down) and gives you a real sense of what it might be like to actually control a Typhoon. You can share the experience with someone as there is enough space for two and you can switch the controls between you throughout the ride. To make it even more exciting you're given enemies to shoot down, making it feel like a real life video game, which makes it that much more appealing (to both adults and children!).
All in all, these two additions to the Fly Zone at the Science Museum are a great addition. It's got something for everyone and I can see these installations inspiring children, giving them a truly unique experience.Read moreLess
"Brilliant fun - my son loves it there and would…"
Brilliant fun - my son loves it there and would go every day if he could! It does get busy, so avoid the middle of the day if you can. Take a packed lunch to eat in the basement and have a coffee or ice cream in the cafe. The shop is great for pocket money treats as well as bigger purchases (v good for birthday presents of all ages).
Top tip: pick up a map at the entrance, as it is quite big to find your way around (even if you go regularly)!
Combine it with the Natural History Museum next door for a whole day out.Read moreLess
