About the event

The London Science Museum has launched a unique new project as a part of their Climate Changing programme. The project, called ‘A Cockroach Tour of the Science Museum’ is a participatory event by art group Superflex, which invites participants to take on the form of cockroaches.

Visitors to the Science Museum will be able to dress up in realistic cockroach costumes to begin a journey through the Museum, exploring the impact on the climate of scientific and technological developments from the perspective of one of the oldest, most resilient life forms on the planet.

The humorous tour will take visitors through the Museum’s Energy Hall, Exploring Space and Making the Modern World galleries before completing their journey in the atmosphere gallery. The tour has been created by Superflex, a group of artists and designers whose work aims both to highlight global issues and to suggest and generate alternative ideas and solutions.
