Wonderlab: The Statoil Gallery at the Science Museum

The Science Museum will be launching a new ‘Wonderlab’ gallery in October sponsored by Norwegian oil giant Statoil.

The interactive gallery is targeted towards children between the ages of seven and 14 and aims to “inspire visitors… to wonder at the science and mathematics that shape the world around us.”

Campaigners, however, question whether Statoil is an appropriate sponsor for such an exhibit – this isn’t the first time the Science Museum has had an exhibit sponsored by an oil company.
