Flight at Science Museum
About this space
Let your imagination soar in this inspiring gallery, which tells the story of manned flight through many of the most significant objects in aviation history.
Styled as a replica aircraft hangar, the Flight gallery is available for both day-time evening hire. Your guests can dine and dance beneath the incredible icons of aviation in an ambient space that accommodates up to 350 people for a dinner/dance or 400 for a reception.
Take a journey from Renaissance dreams of human flight to the jump-jets and wide-body aeroplanes of today. Full-sized planes, model aircraft and commemorative exhibits surround your guests, who can get up-close to the objects on overhead walkways.
Just downstairs from the gallery you’ll find the Discovery Motion Theatre, where your party can fly to the moon and experience the sights and sounds of an Apollo mission at our interactive 3D movie, Legend of Apollo.
