On 15 December 2015, Major Tim Peake embarked on the Principia mission to the International Space Station, where he spent six months orbiting Earth. Thanks to extraordinary leaps in communication technology, we watched as he broadcast live experiments, walked in space and even ran the London Marathon.

On 18 June 2016, Tim returned to Earth in the Soyuz TMA-19M descent module. Now, thanks to the Science Museum Group’s partnership with Samsung, you can join us for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get a close look at this historic spacecraft—complete with scorch marks from its re-entry through the atmosphere.

We are also delighted to announce that the Sokol KV-2 emergency spacesuit worn by Tim Peake as he travelled into space has joined the Science Museum Group Collection, and will be on display alongside the spacecraft.

Our Learning team have also created a special programme for schools to coincide with Soyuz’s arrival at the museum.

The Soyuz module will be touring the Science Museum Group museums as well as the national museums of Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland over the next two years. Find out more about the tour.

I think its in the. Big warehouse near it
Me and my family went about 2 weeks ago and although it was great seeing it they could have displayed it far better than they did.
It was just plonked in the entrance with someone doing a very dumbed down talk which I think was aimed at the 5 year olds there lol.
But saying all it's still worth a visit , maybe not the rest of the museum as it's slowly going downhill which is a shame

Thanks for the info

I have to agree with the negative comments here. As for the museum, it used to be great but sadly now isn’t. A lot of the great exhibits are there but the museum has become a lifeless soulless place. There are still things worth going to see but it needs a proper update.
The space center at Leicester was a decent day out last week if this is your sort of thing. The kids loved the we are stars in the planetarium

We went only last week
A gem of a museum. Visited the robotics exhibition and was surprised how dad in the shed looking our state of the art robots are but look closer and you will appreciate the work.
In the hangar there is a true 360 ride which is great and a vr simulation of tim peakes orbital re entry
Personally great museum and kids loved it
Shared on FB.
Great opportunity to look at the kit,we will be travelling to see it so thanks for posting
Does the 'space' station ever actually go out into space instead of just flying round the earth?
