Wallow in wonder in the absorbing Science Museum, with something for every age group. For toddlers and younger children, there are water and construction games in the basement, as well as regular shows on subjects close to children’s hearts, such as the origin of bubbles. Upstairs are more hands-on exhibits, where you can test out how light travels or different types of energy; there are demonstrations of how rockets work, and you can go on a flight simulator to the moon. On other floors find space rockets, the earliest locomotive—Stephenson’s Rocket—and the Energy Gallery. Culinary tip: skip the uninspiring restaurants/cafes and take a picnic.
