Science Museum's new Wellcome Wing
The 50m Wellcome Wing, the largest and most ambitious project in the Science Museum's history, opens to the public on 3 July 2000.

Aiming to be the world's leading centre for contemporary and future science, it contains a 450 seat IMAX, cinema, a simulator and a suite of six specially created exhibitions covering genetics, digital technology, bio-medicine and artificial intelligence.

Feedback stations will ask for visitors' impressions and art installations, from some of the world's leading artists, will encourage spectators to view science from a new perspective. Leading academic centres will also use the Wing as a base for 'live research'.
