Magic milk

Try this artistic hands-on science experiment. All you need is milk and food colouring. We think it’s great fun and very visual and the best part is that you’ll create something unique every time.

Cornflour slime

Playing with cornflour slime is great if you love using your sense of touch. It’s a non-Newtonian fluid which means it can behave like a solid or a liquid.

Have a go at making some at home. Instructions to make slime

How you can support the Science Museum

Our mission is to inspire the next generation with science but with our museum doors closed we need your help to continue this work.

Support us by leaving a review on Tripadvisor, making a purchase from our online shop, or making a donation. Your help, large or small, will make a huge difference – thank you.

And whilst our doors are closed, our incredible collection – and range of activities and learning resources – remain open to you online.

We have reviewed the postal rates and am pleased that we have now reduced these. This now means that the total cost of your orders will now be lower.

For the popular orders of hearing aid batteries, these will now cost below €2 a pack – this includes postage and packaging!
