The Sun: Living With Our Star – London Science Museum Trip!

SUN Exhibition Banner

Hello my lovelies! So about two weeks ago now I was invited for breakfast at the London Science Museum to view their new exhibition – The Sun: Living With Our Star, and how it has changed/impacted us over the years and will in the future. This was actually the second time I got to go to this exhibition; because I went at the very beginning of February with Matt, and we loved it, so when I got the chance to go back and take my family, I jumped at the opportunity. Photo 17-02-2019, 2 41 31 pm

I’ll start with a little info about the exhibition itself. The show is up until the 6th May 2019, and tickets are from £15 and kids under 16 years old go for free! (Bargain if you ask me). The exhibition has a few interactive displays which my family and I found great fun, and I learnt loads of new things about the sun that I didn’t know before. So, here’s what I have to say about it.

Firstly, I’d definitely recommend you go and see it! It’s a great day out for not only yourself, but also your family! Every piece in the exhibition is beautiful, unique and just darn right fascinating!

One thing I learnt is what to take (and what not to take) in the event of a solar storm. I also learnt how to read two types of sun dials..who needs watches anyway?!

After having a little sit down on the beach loungers I got to virtually try on some sunglasses from different places and times around the world. If you go and try on the glasses, take a photo and add it to your instagram story and tag me (@theweightofmyworlds) and the science museum (@sciencemuseum), I’d love to see your snaps!

I got to see what time the sun rises and sets in different countries on different days, this display was beautiful! In contrast to that, I saw this bizarre bed without a mattress, it looks like some sort of medieval torture device but was actually used to treat sun stroke.

I’ll stop going on about how cool (or should I be saying hot? Hahaha) the exhibition was now and let some of the photos I took speak for themselves, but you aren’t seeing everything.. you’ve got to go and check it out for yourselves!

They have a great gift shop by the way, and the London Science Museum has even curated a new book called ‘The Sun: One Thousand Years Of Scientific Imagery’ with a huge number of incredible images not only of the sun but everything related to the sun!

After the exhibition, we went and had a wander round the rest of the museum and then had coffee and cake in one of their lovely cafes! I hope you enjoy the museum; if you go (which you should..) be sure to let me know and tag me in any of your photos you post! Once we’d had a good chill out and snack, we went and visited a few of the other museums and made a weekend of it!

I hope you enjoyed today’s post my lovelies, it was an absolute pleasure to visit the London Science Museum and write this post. I know you’ll all love it if you go!

Have a great weekend everyone! Where do you like going for days out? Let me know in the comments!!

Love,

  1. I’ve been to the science museum a few times now and there’s always something new and interesting to discover there. This looks like s great exhibition and online how some of the displays are interactive, it reminds me very much of ‘We are the Curious’ which is a science centre in Bristol.
