As part of the Royal Society's 350th Anniversary celebrations, our new exhibition "The Royal Society: 350 Years of Science" will take you on a journey through the Royal Society's beautiful buildings on Carlton House Terrace and through the varied and fascinating history of the Society, encountering major scientific personalities and discoveries along the way.

The exhibition will feature a number of treasures from the Royal Society's extensive collections of archives, rare books, artefacts, and portraits

The Royal Society is a working building and the exhibition will not always be accessible to the public. Booking is normally required. Free guided tours of the exhibition will be advertised two weeks in advance.

No advance booking will be necessary during the week Monday 28 June to Friday 2 July, when the exhibition will be open from 10.00 to 4.00 daily.
