The Sun: Living With Our Star


The Science Museum is staging a big, bright, illuminating exhibition about the Sun’s large, warm, mood-enhancing, good for picnics and harvesting energy as well as for physical health (so long as you don’t forget your SPF) abilities.

There’s plenty on show; from interactive experiments involving bouncing solar energy panels to virtual reality stunts with different effects of sunglasses, an investigation into the threat of solar storms, a mock beach complete with golden palm trees, information on nuclear power and upcoming NASA and ESA solar missions, as well as insight into how the Sun impacts our circadian rhythms.

The show opens with a glorious collection of ancient artefacts which explore humankind’s historical relationship with the Sun and details the myths and legends that have over time sought to explain the Sun’s power, movement and impact on the way we live.

Tickets from £15—kids aged 16 and under go free.
