Discover the incredible story of the Sun in our new blockbuster exhibition.

From ancient myths to health and wellbeing, solar power and more, The Sun takes a closer look at our ever-changing relationship with our closest star. 

See stunning objects, including an ancient Babylonian tablet, a prototype fusion reactor and even Jimmy Carter's solar panels from the White House. Watch the sun rise around the world, relax on our indoor beach, or strike a pose and try on sunglasses with our digital interactives.
