Next month, just after Professor Stephen Hawking would have turned 80, the Science Museum will be opening a new display dedicated to the working life of the world-renowned theoretical physicist.
About the Science MuseumOne of the great Victorian era museums devoted to the history of industry and sciences.
Lots of themed galleries ranging from the early days of the industrial revolution right up to the space age and computing.
Expect lots of large original artifacts, huge steam engines, rocket engines, cars and right in the roof, a vast collection of aircraft.
IMPORTANT - Although venues are reopening, their hours may differ from normal, and most now need prebooking before you visit.
