The exhibitions were excellent. Unfortunately, it was a struggle to find toilet facilities that were open. (September 2021 - Secondary School)




Easy to access with group of pupils, staff helpful. Museum was fairly quiet so easy to social distance and for pupils to easily move about the museum. Picnic area was large to easy to accommodate a large number of pupils at lunch time. (July 2021 - Secondary School)

(February 2020 - Primary School)




Our students did not really enjoy the Code Breaking exhibition, I think that this was due to it being very factual and not hands on. (February 2020 - Secondary School)

Superb. Wonderlab especially was extremely engaging and Explainers were excellent and friendly. 'A Beautiful Planet' in the IMAX was inspiring. (July 2019 - Secondary School)




Great venue, safe trip that was fun and informative. (July 2019 - Secondary School)




It was amazing and lots to discover. Students enjoyed the hands on experience on different activities. Hubble 3 D was a real eye-opener and made students realise that fixing something in space is extremely risky. (July 2019 - Secondary School)

(June 2019 - Primary School)




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. (June 2019 - Secondary School)

The day was enjoyed by all who attended and the organisation of activities kept the students busy throughout the day. (June 2019 - Secondary School)




(June 2019 - Secondary School)




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 School)




Good for younger students but the captions were dumbed down so much that some of them were bordering on incorrect physics. (June 2019 - Secondary School)




(June 2019 - Primary School)




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 School)




Was a great day and such a lovely experience for the students for free. (June 2019 - Secondary School)




(June 2019 - Primary School)




(June 2019 - Primary School)

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 School)




Overall, it was a fantastic day and the children thoroughly enjoyed it. Activities at the museum were spot on. (May 2019 - Secondary School)




The workshop was ok but could have been more interactive. (May 2019 - Primary School)




The lunch seating area is not big enough to accommodate all the schools during visit - plan carefully. Wonderlab is a must! (May 2019 - Primary School)




Children were able to consolidate their learning. A great Fabulous Finish (May 2019 - Primary School)




lOTS TO DO AND GREAT STAFF INVOLVEMENT - GREAT FACILITIES FOR LUNCH AND EASY ACCESS FROM SOUTH KENSINGTON STATION (May 2019 - Primary School)




(May 2019 - Primary School)




(May 2019 - Primary School)




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 School)




Plenty of hands on activity, if i went again i would look at doing some of the more interactive activities. (May 2019 - Secondary School)




(May 2019 - Primary School)

There were lots of interactive activities for children to participate in to develop their understanding. (March 2019 - Primary School)




(March 2019 - Primary School)




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 School)




(March 2019 - Primary School)




(March 2019 - Primary School)




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 School)




(March 2019)




A few of the exhibits are looking a little tired now e.g. Space. (March 2019 - Primary School)




(March 2019 - Primary School)




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 School)




So interactive and engaging for all pupils. Very well organised. (March 2019 - Primary School)




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 School)




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 School)




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 School)




We try to visit every year as this is such a good experience for our pupils (March 2019 - Primary School)

(January 2019 - Primary School)




(December 2018 - Secondary School)




The children loved it although presentation was not so relevant. (December 2018 - Primary School)




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 School)




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 School)

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.

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 School
Good for younger students but the captions were dumbed down so much that some of them were bordering on incorrect physics.



June 2019 - Primary School




June 2019 - Secondary School
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 School
Was a great day and such a lovely experience for the students for free.

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 - Secondary School
Overall, it was a fantastic day and the children thoroughly enjoyed it. Activities at the museum were spot on.



May 2019 - Primary School
The workshop was ok but could have been more interactive.



May 2019 - Primary School
The lunch seating area is not big enough to accommodate all the schools during visit - plan carefully. Wonderlab is a must!



May 2019 - Primary School
Children were able to consolidate their learning. A great Fabulous Finish

lOTS TO DO AND GREAT STAFF INVOLVEMENT - GREAT FACILITIES FOR LUNCH AND EASY ACCESS FROM SOUTH KENSINGTON STATION

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 - Secondary School
Plenty of hands on activity, if i went again i would look at doing some of the more interactive activities.

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.

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 School
So interactive and engaging for all pupils. Very well organised.



March 2019 - Primary School
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 School
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 School
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.

We try to visit every year as this is such a good experience for our pupils

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 - Primary School
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.
