The Science Museum launches new venue

The Science Museum has launched a new space for corporate hire - Wonderlab: The Statoil Gallery.

Opening later this month, the £6m gallery is an interactive space featuring more than 50 exhibits in seven zones. Accommodating up to 400 guests for evening receptions, the venue can also be used in conjunction with another gallery for seated dining. Guests can take selfies in the infinity mirror, order experiments at the Chemistry Bar, watch lightning strike, and dance on the revolving solar system under a canopy of stars.
