June at the Museum

News posts

Whoever you are and whatever you're looking for, the Museum's got you covered this June.

Conversations with scientists? Yup. Trivia night, complete with cocktails? Sorted? The muppets of Sesame Street explaining astronomy? This is getting weirdly specific, but yes, we've got that, too. 

Whatever piques your curiosity, we can't wait to see you this June!
