Hotel near Science Museum
The Science Museum was founded in 1857 as part of the South Kensington Museum and gained independence in 1909.
Today the museum is world renowned for its historic collections, awe-inspiring galleries and inspirational exhibitions.
This museum is one of the most interactive in the city, with lots of hands-on exhibits. In the high-tech Welcome Wing, visitors can digitally alter their faces to look older or younger and manipulate their voices. Some of the highlights include the Launch Pad gallery, which explains basic scientific principles, Puffing Billy, the oldest steam locomotive in the world and the actual Apollo 10 capsule. The King George III Collection of scientific instruments highlights 18th century science, or if you’re looking to rest your feet, there is also a 450-seat IMAX theater
In December 2010 a new permanent climate science gallery – ‘atmosphere: exploring climate science’ – opened up, allowing visitors to deepen their understanding of climate science in an enjoyable, engaging and memorable way.
If you are visiting the Science Museum and require accommodation then why not choose Clayton Crown Hotel London which is located approx 30 minutes via public transport from the museum.
