Science Museum in aerospace tours expansion

London visitors, and indeed London residents, might like to know that the Kensington Science Museum, with its fine aviation collection will be offering a selection of exclusive group tours, hosted by the museum’s own specialist curators, this summer.  Each tour, which will run for up to an hour, will highlight key objects in the collection and the museum’s expert guide will reveal hidden stories behind objects that have changed our lives.

Tours will be based on three fascinating subjects: Space, Medicine and Flight.  Learn about the dazzling number of satellites and rockets that have been launched into space and what it is like there.  Find out how the Beatles led to the first CT Scanner in a medical tour of Making the Modern World.  Starting in 1700, you will be guided through some of the medical milestones and practices of the last 300 years.  Take in the delights of flight, from ballooning mania, via flying pioneers the Wright Brothers and Amy Johnson, to modern jump jets.

Tours must be pre-booked and can be tailored for groups. www.sciencemuseum.org.uk/groups
