Robots – making machines human

Last chance – explore the blockbuster exhibition Robots from the Science Museum in London and join us on a journey through the world of robotics – from the humble beginnings of 16th century mechanical automatons to the latest humanoids.

Exhibition dates

17 July 2019 – 15 March 2020.

Guided tours

Guided tours in English on Wednesdays 18:00 and on weekends 15:30.

Interact with robots

Human-like machines are both fascinating and frightening at the same time. Why do we create machines that resemble us humans?

This intriguing exhibition features a unique collection of over 100 robots, from the earliest automatons to robots from science fiction and modern-day research labs.

Come face to face with some of the most advanced real-world robots with artificial intelligence, such as the news reader Kodomoroid, the fist-bumping Pepper the Robot and a Robothespian, who can quote lines from famous films.

Meet the classic T-800 from Terminator (1991), Maria from Fritz Lang’s Metropolis (1927), and see early automatons from the 16th century, a time when anatomical models and even clocks posed deep questions about whether the human body itself is a machine.
