Opening in February 2017, our next blockbuster exhibition will explore 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.
Other highlights include:
- An articulated iron manikin from the 1500s
- Cygan, a giant 1950s Italian robot with a glamorous past
- One of the first walking two-legged robots
Book your ticket now for this intriguing exhibition and discover just how robots and society have been shaped by religious belief, the industrial revolution, 20th century popular culture and our dreams of the future.
