24 OCTOBER 2016 / Opening of Wonderlab: The Statoil Gallery at the Science Museum in London

On October 11th, the Science Museum in London opened their new permanent interactive gallery designed to inspire the next generation.

Around 50 objects and installations attempt to bring scientific phenomena to life for the enjoyment of children and adults. The Museum’s goal is to see 200,000 young people in school groups visiting the gallery for free each year. Seven themes, including forces, electricity, light, sound, matter, space and math interact with the audience encouraging them to think like scientists. The SNF supported this new gallery.

The Science Museum is the flagship Museum in the Science Museum Group and aims to be the leading international museum championing the understanding, enjoyment and prestige of science in modern society.
