London Science Museum Lates

For a night out last week with colleagues we spent the evening in the Science Museum. It may seem an odd choice but I work with technical people and it's something we were all interested in - they also sold beer! One the last Wednesday of every month the museum holds 'Lates'. These are adult only events and the theme changes every month, this month's was mental health. All of the existing exhibits are accessible, there are some standard items that are also there every month - like the silent disco - and there are theme specific speakers and stands.

With this being our first time we saw very few on the specific presentations and spent most of the time wandering through the museum enjoying a beer or too.

The evening started around 6:30 and finished at 10pm and the time went in no time, we only just had time to check out every floor and we were too late to ride the Red Arrows Experience.

Some thoughts for next time:

Do
- Take cash, it's far easier than cards for the bars
- Get there for the start, there's lots to see and the time flies
- Go with friends, it's a great shared experience and some of the hands on parts are easier with others
- Check the schedule when you get there and plan for the things you really want to see
- Take a camera so II have more to post

Don't
- Wear too much - it's warm in there and the queue for the cloaks was huge
- Carry anything - there's lots of hands on and with a beer in one hand you don't want a bag in the other
- Drive - there are a couple of tables selling beer on each floor!

All in all a great evening and I'll definitely be going again.
