About this space

A fascinating space celebrating more than 200 years of innovation in information and communication technologies, our newest permanent gallery is available for evening hire. Accommodating up to 400 guests, it is the perfect venue for standing drinks receptions.

Information Age is divided into six zones, each representing a different technology network. The gallery explores the important events that shaped the development of these networks, from the growth of the worldwide telegraph to the influence of mobile phones on our lives today.

Invite your guests to relive remarkable moments in history, told through the eyes of those who invented, operated or were affected by the new wave of technology, from the first BBC radio broadcast in 1922 to the dawn of digital TV. They can also see where Her Majesty The Queen sent her first Tweet, when she opened the gallery in 2014.

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.
