B-Movies & Bad Science

On Sunday, June 28th, the Natural History Museum kicks off a series that promises to be fun & entertaining for the whole family.


Join members of the Museum's history and science departments for a lighthearted exploration of the "science" behind Hollywood's creature features. You'll discover what makes these creatures and plots implausible off screen, and see some of their "real life" counterparts from the Museum's collection!
