Available until the end of October, The Wellcome Wing Gallery can accommodate up to 450 standing guests for conferences, product launches, shows and exhibitions.

Located in the same section as the IMAX theatre, the two venues can be combined for bigger events and drinks receptions.

Jodie Guilford, event sales manager at the Science Museum, described the event space as a 'blank canvas', for conference groups to adapt as they wanted. "The fact that it is only available until October means it is perfect for exclusive, one-of-a-kind events," she explained. She added that the Science Museum's recently revamped events team would be on hand for groups wishing to create bespoke conferences.
