About this event

Welcome to the Robot Zoo!

On your special evening safari around the Museum, you can play with giant robot animals in our popular new exhibition, meet exotic sea creatures in our acclaimed Aquarium, catch sight of animal animations, and get hands-on with specimens from our Natural History collection.

Experts, scientists and curators will help you explore the relationship between humans, robots and animals, and there will be a special panel discussion on ‘Intelligent Life: The Robot, Animal and Human Zoo’ with:

  • Dr Adam Rutherford, science writer and broadcaster
  • Dr Kate Devlin, Senior Lecturer in the Department of Computing at Goldsmiths
  • Prof. Steve Fuller, Professor of sociology and social epistemology at the University of Warwick

For party animals there will be music from Dana Immanuel and the Stolen Band, animals vs robots games with DJ Anna Greenwood, cocktails and food. Get snaps of your night in the photo booth wearing your newly crafted furry ears or even with your face painted, and there will also be prizes for animal and robot fancy dress as well as a special award for Best in Show.
