The Energy Show at the Science Museum. Review

We were invited* for a family day out at the Science Museum over the summer holidays.

It is by far one of our favourite museums and we always have so much fun whenever we visit. We had mentioned their summer activities in our summer guide but we had to check it out for ourselves.

The live explosions and bangs captivated little one’s minds and guaranteed to leave a lasting impression.

The energy show is described as an explosive family theatre for curious minds. We certainly think so! It was an electrifying show and a very educative performance, teaching kids all about science in a fun and engaging way.


Annabella and Phil, two students who are on the verge of failing their Science project, present the show with loads of humour, energy and bangs. They race against time to prove their knowledge and understanding of energy through a series of live experiments with the help of a virtual assistant named i-nstein. They manage to demonstrate to the audience  the nine types of energy live on stage using a variety of chemicals and gadgets. We got to see methane bubbles explode, hydrogen balloons pop and how to freeze flowers using liquid nitrogen.

All in all, it was a great family day out. The Museums is so big and there is so much to do and see but also it was a chance to feed little one’s brains during the holidays.

Have you been to the Science Museum with your little ones?  Let us know by Tweeting us @KensingtonMums or join our conversation on our Facebook Page.

The energy show is being shown at the Science Museum until 31st August 2013 and is recommended for ages 7+. Please visit their website for more information.
