Science Museum Summer Exhibitions

London’s Science Museum is the most visited science and technology museum in Europe, and for good reason! The interactive and thought provoking galleries really do bring science to life. This summer the Science Museum has some very exciting exhibitions that are sure to entertain and educate the whole family:

Leonardo da Vinci: The Mechanics of Genius 

Leonardo da Vinci is famous for his paintings such as The Last Supper and the Mona Lisa; however he is less known for his talents as a brilliant and insatiably curious engineer. The Science Museum’s internationally-acclaimed exhibition investigates both the facts and misconceptions that surround the genius that is da Vinci. Highlights of the exhibition include:

  • 39 historical models of Leonardo’s inventions including diving equipment, flying machines and weapons
  • large scale recreations of his famous drawings sketches
  • multimedia installations
  • interactive games

Fox Talbot: Dawn of the Photograph

This new major exhibition at The Science Museum focuses on a pioneer of Victorian photography, William Henry Fox Talbot. During the nineteenth century as the industrial revolution was in full swing, Fox Talbot invented the negative-positive process, a technique that formed the basis of photography across the globe. Fox Talbot: Dawn of the Photograph exhibition is one of the world’s most extensive collections of his work. Visitors will discover the influence of Talbot’s revolutionary technology, and have the chance to gaze upon original prints from his seminal publication ‘The Pencil of Nature’. A fascinating opportunity to explore the work and life of the man who has been immortalised as ‘the father of the photograph’.
