The Sun

The Sun Our blockbuster exhibition, The Sun, has been extended until 29 March.

From ancient myths to health and wellbeing, solar power and more, The Sun takes a closer look at our ever-changing relationship with our closest star.

See stunning objects, including an ancient Babylonian tablet, a prototype fusion reactor and even Jimmy Carter's solar panels from the White House. Watch the sun rise around the world, relax on our indoor beach, or strike a pose and try on sunglasses with our digital interactives.

Kids go free to see The Sun and if you're visiting with children, make sure you pick up a copy of the free family trail from the exhibition welcome desk (or download one and print at home) and explore the exhibition together with games and challenges.
