The Sun: Living with our star at the Science Museum

Discover the incredible story of our closest star – the Sun – through fun hands-on experiences, unique objects, and stunning imagery in the Science Museum’s latest exhibition.

Set at the centre of our solar system, the Sun’s brilliant light shapes our sense of time, our health and our environment. People have tried to harness its power and uncover its secrets since the dawn of civilisation.

From 3000-year-old artefacts to upcoming space missions and objects from the Ri archives, this spectacular exhibition takes you on a visual, action-packed journey that brings the science of the Sun to life.
