Attracting 3.3 million visitors annually, and educating adults and children alike since its inception in 1857, the Science Museum is a world renowned, iconic venue. Typically, visitors are fascinated by the award winning exhibitions, interactive displays, and the endless stories of scientific discovery. But, what is possibly more exciting than the displays themselves, is that the Science Museum can be hired as an event space, meaning guests can immerse themselves in scientific discovery after hours, away from the hustle and bustle of London.

Light up your next event with the brand new Illuminate space, opening 1st March 2019 at the Science Museum. This two-level space features panoramic windows, that give epic views of London.

Level 4 of Illuminate can hold up to 400 people standing, and Level 5 can hold up to 450 people. There is no need to fret about catering either, as they have a dedicated in-house catering team, Moving Venue, who will create bespoke, carefully curated menus, drawing on their knowledge of food trends, styling and seasonal ingredients.

The discovery doesn't stop there, the Science Museum has heaps more venue spaces available for hire including its very own IMAX Theatre and a number of spaces are housed in the museum exhibitions themselves.
