The new, state-of-the-art interactive gallery at the National Science and Media Museum is now open and invites children to become scientists through the interactive exhibits featuring the science behind light, sound and images.

With more than 20 mind-blowing attractions, Wonderlab is a wonderful place to take the kids!

The gallery features a massive mirror maze, a 15m echo tube and a musical laser tunnel, as well as the world’s first permanent 3D-printed zoetrope.

Children can turn their entire body into a corkscrew on a giant screen, take a selfie showing their face through a drop of water and shout and scream into a colossal echo tube the length of an articulated lorry!

Throughout your visit there are live experiments taking place, extraordinary experiences allowing visitors to explore the stunning science of light and sound.

Entry to Wonderlab is free but it is recommended that families book in advance through the website: www.scienceandmediamuseum.org.uk/wonderlab

The museum has also confirmed it will host the Soyuz TMA-19M spacecraft that carried Major Tim Peake to the International Space Station and back to earth.

Visitors will be able to see it in September when it travels outside London for the first time since it was acquired by the Science Museum Group last year.
