The Sun: Living With Our Star
Science Museum

Discover the incredible story of our closest star—the Sun—through fun hands-on experiences, unique objects, and stunning imagery in our latest exhibition.

Set at the centre of our solar system, the Sun’s brilliant light shapes our sense of time, our health and our environment. People have tried to harness its power and uncover its secrets since the dawn of civilisation.
