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.
17 July 2019 – 15 March 2020.
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.
You can explore Robots through a digital guide that you download to your smartphone. The guide is available in English, Finnish, French, German, Russian and Swedish.
Please note that the free admission on Wednesday nights does not apply to the Robots exhibition.
Robot Zone – shows, yoga and and more
In the Robot Zone you can learn more about and do things together with robots, such as shows, yoga classes and listen to fairy tales. You can also explore what robots do in a factory at night with VR and play a robot game.
