“Steampunk artists have taken over the Time galleries at the Royal Observatory, creating a lavishly re-imagined story of the pursuit for longitude. Bursting with quirky characters, this witty, theatrical, and fabulously inventive narrative reinterprets the science and the drama of the 18th-century quest, bringing to life madcap inventors, stargazing scientists and extremely elegant explorers of the past.”
Very funny show – go when it’s quiet and read the captions…. broken flanges, unknown contraptions and oil paintings that supposedly depict the aftermath of its captain accidentally conjuring a sea monster. A fun reinterpretation of items within the Museum’s collection.
