Our inspirational exhibitions, astounding galleries and creative blank canvas spaces, combine to make the Science Museum one of London’s most unique venues for corporate or private hire.

The Science Museum, which celebrated its centenary in June 2009, has been utilising its numerous galleries, auditoria, special exhibitions and dedicated conference suites for events since 1992.

With over 15,000 objects on display, the Science Museum is not only one of the world’s most popular museums, it is also home to more original ‘world-first’ exhibits than any other museum dedicated to science, technology and medicine.

Eight core galleries are available for hire before 10.00 or after 18.00 daily, ranging from the traditional to the contemporary and interactive, covering a broad spectrum of subjects. Two contrasting daytime conference venues, the IMAX cinema, a vast blank-canvas space, motion theatre and a rolling programme of special exhibitions and specialist subject galleries of varying size are also available.
