About this space

Exploring Space is one of the Science Museum’s most popular attractions. This evocative gallery tells the fascinating story of space exploration and showcases satellites, probes, landers and actual space rockets.

Available for evening hire, this out-of-this-world location is the ideal landing site for a drinks reception for up to 300 people or dinner for up to 180.

As you enjoy your event experience you can find out how the Space Age started with the launch of Sputnik 1 and explore how we’ve sent spacecraft to other planets, walked on the Moon and peered into the heart of our galaxy and beyond.

Your guests can marvel at a full-sized replica of the ‘Eagle’, the lander that took the astronauts Armstrong and Aldrin to the Moon in 1969, and study displays of astronaut food and drink that show how the Apollo crew sustained themselves in space.

As the home of human ingenuity, the Science Museum aims to inspire visitors with award-winning exhibitions, iconic objects and stories of incredible scientific achievement.

With origins in the Great Exhibition of 1851, the museum continually strives to be the best place in the world for people to enjoy science. Our world-class collection forms an enduring record of scientific, technological and medical achievements from across the globe.

Among key objects on display are Caroline Herschel’s telescope (c.1795), Alan Turing’s Pilot ACE computer (1950) and the Apollo 10 capsule that went into lunar orbit in 1969.

Our amazing exhibitions, astounding galleries and creative blank canvas spaces combine to make the Science Museum a unique and inspiring London venue for corporate or private hire.
