Step into Lyra's Worlds
Props and costumes from the BBC HBO series His Dark Materials
Just like Lyra with her alethiometer, we search for answers to life’s questions in our moving universe.
Discover your Daemon
Journey through the History of Science Museum with your daemon guide to discover stories of people just like you: creative leaders, resourceful adventurers, daring visionaries and ingenious scholars.
There are objects and stories to find as a family in each gallery before you enter the world of Philip Pullman’s international best-selling trilogy, His Dark Materials.
Step into Lyra’s study, under a canopy of stars and Dust, to discover props and costumes from the BBC HBO production, including Lyra's alethiometer from the series.
Explore the Museum’s intriguing dials and devices that inspired Philip Pullman to create the alethiometer, and send your questions out to the cosmos.
