Robots – then and now exhibition on Tuesday 2nd - Tuesday 16th October 2018

Robots – then and now, developed by the Science Museum in London,tells the 500-year, work in progress story of building automated machines, from the humble beginnings of 16th century mechanical automatons to the latest humanoids – and everything in between.

The new exhibition is included in the admission ticket to Life Science Centre, along with hands-on zones for learning through creative play, educational shows in the Science Theatre and the planetarium, and a thrilling journey on the 4D Motion Ride*.

Robots – then and now features more than 100 exciting objects from the world of robotics, including a small number of interactive robots. Come face to face with the fist-bumping Pepper robot and a Robothespian, who can quote lines from famous films.

There’s also plenty to fascinate sci-fi fans, including a T800 Terminator used in the film Terminator Salvation and the Maria robot from Fritz Lang’s 1927 film Metropolis.

Robots – then and now is at Life Science Centre from 26 May to 2 December 2018. Day tickets start at £8.00 for children aged 5-17 to £36.00 for a family ticket. Children aged 4 and under go free.
