The Science Museum is a fantastic day out, however, due to COVID-19 the overall experience was a bit of a letdown. A lot of things in the museum are interactive such as tablets and a lot of these were off due to social distancing measures.Nevertheless my family and I had a fantastic time and the space section was our favorite.
