Electricity, the vacuum flask, the electric motor, knowing why the sky is blue, 10 chemical elements... Some of the most important scientific discoveries from the last 150 years have been made here in the Royal Institution’s building. Important things like how we generate and transmit electricity, but also more handy-but-non-essential things like the vacuum flask. See some of the explosive ways that our scientists got their results, and explore with us the modern day applications of their work.
We charge a small ticket fee to minimise non-attendance and we invest ticket income into the events that we put on. Tickets are £1.50 per person (teachers, students, adults and children).
School groups are welcome to combine their visit with a tour of the museum. Call the schools dept on 020 7409 2992 for more information and to book your group in, or to book our limited space for your students to have lunch.
