28 May-27 November 2005.
As a novel, television series and one-time radio show, Douglas Adams Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, which mixes humour and science fiction, has won lasting acclaim among the British public. With a new film version reaching the cinemas on 28 May, the Science Museum in London has organised an exhibition to open on the same day that informs visitors about the science, both real and fictitious, behind the book. The museum worked together with the films producers and features plenty of mouth-watering costumes, props and fantastic puppets created by the Henson Workshop for the new movie. There is a full introduction to the story, characters and science of Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy without the danger of spoiling the end of the film. Tickets cost 7.95, 6.95 or 4.25 for school visits.
