Science Cafes are live - and lively - events taking place in across the globe, in casual settings such as pubs, coffeehouses (and even museums!). They are open to everyone and feature an engaging conversation with one or more scientists about a particular topic.
Conversation. Coffee. Chocolate. Join us for these evenings in the museum - free and open to all.
