Robots exhibition


Various locations, London, United Kingdom

Wednesday, February 8, 2017 - 10:00

The Robots exhibition explores the 500-year story of humanoid robots and the artistic and scientific quest to understand what it means to be human. 

Set in five different periods and places, the exhibition features a unique collection of over 100 robots, from a 16th-century mechanical monk to robots from science fiction and modern-day research labs. Twelve of the robots will be working models and you may even get the chance to interact with one.

The exhibition opened in London in October 2017, before going on tour through the UK and internationally.
