Identity Change for Museum

The Science Museum is to re-open its Wellcome Wing event space after a six-month development & refurbishment programme.

The upgraded 'Who am I?' gallery is to reopen on June 26. Established as one of the most popular galleries in the Science Museum, Who am I? presents the latest brain science and genetics through a mixture of interactive exhibits and object-rich displays. Since 'Who am I?' originally opened 10 years ago, there have been breakthroughs in the science that defines our identity. New interactive exhibits will enable guests to morph their face and experience a voicebox makeover. Displays will provide in-depth coverage of genetics and brain sciences.

Corporate and private clients will be able to hire the gallery for evening drinks receptions for up to 350 guests, who will get the chance to explore answers to these questions via object displays, contemporary artworks and sharing opinions on ethical issues in science.

The launch will be followed in November 2010, by the unveiling of the new £4m atmosphere: exploring climate science gallery which will put people at the centre of the climate change story and transform the second floor of the Wellcome Wing. The gallery will offer an events space for evening receptions of up to 300 standing.

The Science Museum has reiterated its commitment to reducing its own carbon footprint. Already a founding signatory of the 10:10 campaign (as part of National Museum of Science and Industry, the Science Museum's parent body), the Museum has pledged to reduce its own carbon emissions by 10 per cent in 2010. The commitment follows a 24 per cent reduction in carbon emissions in 2008/9 following the introduction of a variety of energy saving schemes.
