It took 12 trips to London before I made it to the Science Museum and only because my niece and nephew had it on their lists of must sees. Odd really that I had never thought of going because the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago was my favorite when I was a kid, mostly because it had all those buttons you could push and things to play with. Even though science wasn't my favorite subject in school, I would highly recommend this museum especially if you are visiting with kids.
The Launch Pad, a wing filled with interactive activities, was the biggest hit with kids and those of us adults who haven't quite grown up yet. We also enjoyed the Making the Modern World display on the ground floor which showcased household items from the 1750s to present, we had a good laugh at some of the things in the displays that the kids didn't recognize-record players, rotary phones, those clunky first computers, typewriters (dang, I feel old!)
Like most of the excellent museums in London, the Science Museum is free except for special features such as the IMAX.
