Hoxton Museum of the Future

Posted by theministry on 22nd July 2016

Grab your flying car and head over to the Hundred Years Gallery to explore the Hoxton Museum of the Future!

Join us for a sneaky peek of future London with our special exhibition, the ‘Hoxton Museum of the Future’

Since January, children in our after school clubs have been hard at work writing stories about the future. Now those stories will come to life in an interactive installation, with clouds of words, escaped zombies and (mostly) friendly robots.

Come along and find out what happens when washing machines turn evil, who won the Space Football tournament and what whales have secretly been talking about all along. The museum will be open to the public:

Hundred Years Gallery, 13 Pearson Street, London, E2 8JD

Saturday 30 July | 11am – 5pm
Sunday 31 July | 11am – 3pm

There will be five zones, each exploring a different theme: Creature Attack, Natural Disasters, New Worlds, Technology and Time Travel, detailed in a collection of artefacts, pictures and sound recordings.

About the Project

The future is a fertile ground for ideas: the opportunities of new technologies, the challenges of environmental problems and the intrigue of the unknown.

We are running a year of projects where we encourage young people to engage with the imaginative potential of the future – not only to give them a wide-ranging creative playground, but also to empower our best ideas generators with the creative skills they’ll need to shape our future.
