The summer theme at the Science Museum is 3D, but what about 4D, where senses beyond vision are challenged and stimulated? On the ground floor, in the Wellcome Wing, you can take a flight to the moon. The Museum’s 4D motion effects theatre immerses you in the sights, sounds, motions and smells of an Apollo space mission. Experience lift-off in a Saturn V rocket, flying through space and landing on the moon – and you don’t need to put in years of training at astronaut school to get in!
