Best Bits

Your mission starts here! The Design Museum invites you to travel to Mars without leaving London – in a multi-sensory adventure for all ages.

Step into a full-scale Mars home, immerse yourself in the untouched beauty of the landscape and learn how rethinking daily life for a zero-waste, clean energy-powered civilisation might help future generations on Earth. 

  • Featuring  immersive environments, about 200 objects including contributions from NASA, the European Space Agency and SpaceX and interactive exhibits
  • Try on some Mars fashion - inspired by the scarcity of materials on Mars
  • Discover an immersive installation featuring high-resolution imagery from Mars never seen in public before. 
  • Ground Control - See how we'll farm and get water (Don't Miss the boot made of fungus grown from human sweat. Waste not, want not!)
  • Take part in the Family Trail and see if you can design how we'll survive on the Red Planet
  • Commencing Countdown, Engines On - Join the 2100 expedition to Mars! After you’ve learnt all about what it takes, it’s time for take-off.
  • Meet the Mars Rovers and explore the future
