Amazing. The activities of the Wonderlab was the children's favourite activity. They also provided a free show which was excellent and they also enjoyed the Imax. I feel they all improved their learning from the visit although some students gained more than others as they were more interested in the science behind the exhibits.

The day was enjoyed by all who attended and the organisation of activities kept the students busy throughout the day. (June 2019 - Secondary - Post No: 13451 )

Brilliant overall - a shame that we booked for a day where we could not go to one of the exhibits, but we now know that Tuesdays and Thursdays are reserved for secondary schools (June 2019 - Secondary - Post No: 13303 )




Good for younger students but the captions were dumbed down so much that some of them were bordering on incorrect physics. (June 2019 - Secondary - Post No: 13284 )




(June 2019 - Primary - Post No: 13148 )




Good range of things, though some of the physics explanations were written in such a "dumbed down" way for significantly younger students that they bordered on incorrect. (June 2019 - Secondary - Post No: 13036 )




Was a great day and such a lovely experience for the students for free. (June 2019 - Secondary - Post No: 13023 )

Since the update to the wonderlab it is much more primary friendly. The workshop we attended covered a whole term's worth of science and reinforced the learning that had already occurred in school fantastically. (May 2019 - Primary - Post No: 12442 )




Overall, it was a fantastic day and the children thoroughly enjoyed it. Activities at the museum were spot on. (May 2019 - Secondary - Post No: 12370 )




The workshop was ok but could have been more interactive. (May 2019 - Primary - Post No: 12349 )




The lunch seating area is not big enough to accommodate all the schools during visit - plan carefully. Wonderlab is a must! (May 2019 - Primary - Post No: 12145 )




Children were able to consolidate their learning. A great Fabulous Finish (May 2019 - Primary - Post No: 12001 )




lOTS TO DO AND GREAT STAFF INVOLVEMENT - GREAT FACILITIES FOR LUNCH AND EASY ACCESS FROM SOUTH KENSINGTON STATION (May 2019 - Primary - Post No: 11890 )

Birilliant workshop about Forces and Space. (no electricity workshops available at the time) The wonderlab area gave children the freedom to explore a range of scientific concepts both independently and with peers. (May 2019 - Primary - Post No: 11712 )




Plenty of hands on activity, if i went again i would look at doing some of the more interactive activities. (May 2019 - Secondary - Post No: 11649 )

The pupils didnt like the science museum as much as the natural history museum but they still enjoyed the exhibits on offer. (April 2019 - Secondary - Post No: 11186 )

It's like a playground...with added learning..brilliant (April 2019 - Primary - Post No: 11163 )

Need to book the Wonderlab in advance (Good hands on activities). We also go to the IMAX in the afternoon which makes it easier for everyone to leave the museum for the coaches at the same time. (March 2019 - Secondary - Post No: 10607 )

It was great for the girls to see many of the different aspects of Space and the ISS that we had been discussing in class. (March 2019 - Primary - Post No: 10464 )

A few of the exhibits are looking a little tired now e.g. Space. (March 2019 - Primary - Post No: 10438 )




(March 2019 - Primary - Post No: 10338 )




The Science Museum was fantatic and the children had an amazing time. Unfortunately we were stuck in a queue on the motorway for 30 minutes, which led to the driver requiring a 30-minute break, so we only ended up with 2 hours at the museum. (March 2019 - Primary - Post No: 10310 )




So interactive and engaging for all pupils. Very well organised. (March 2019 - Primary - Post No: 10309 )




Shakeel needs a 1-1 on the next school trip due to his inability to follow instructions due to the change of routine. Try and get parents that are DBS checked - Confirm this the day before as we had someone not turn up. (March 2019 - Primary - Post No: 10280 )




Great trip - easy to get to and used to having large school groups. Had crates that we could put our bags and coats in which were locked, but we could get access to easily when needed. The venue was busy with other trips and involved quite a lot of walking to the basement. Girls were well behaved and we found space to eat easily downstairs in the picnic area. They had staff on hand to support where necessary. (March 2019 - Primary - Post No: 10269 )




Brilliant activities planned for the children and there was enough to do during the whole time we were there. Children had a great experience at the museum visiting the galleries, wonderlab and shows. (March 2019 - Primary - Post No: 10218 )

The children loved it although presentation was not so relevant. (December 2018 - Primary - Post No: 8620 )




Galleries were appropriate for age/ability. Support for visually impaired student was non existant despite being informed in advance that large print gallery guides would be available for the student. Very disappointing! (December 2018 - Secondary - Post No: 8587 )




The children were engaged from the start and there was no time left for them to go idle. They particularly enjoyed the carousel of activities offered in the Wonderlab. Unfortunately, there wasn't enough time to explore each station. (December 2018 - Primary - Post No: 8580 )
