About Moving to Mars

The Design Museum invites you to travel to Mars without leaving London – in a multi-sensory adventure for all ages. An essential exhibition for today, exploring the non-stop nature of modern life.

Step into a full-scale Mars home, immerse yourself in the untouched beauty of the landscape and learn how rethinking daily life for a zero-waste, clean energy-powered civilisation might help future generations on Earth.

Children born today are the first who might witness a human mission to Mars in their lifetime. It’s one of humanity’s great challenges and everything will need to be designed – but should we even be going?

The exhibition features immersive environments, about 200 objects including contributions from NASA, the European Space Agency and SpaceX; NASA’s 3D-Printed Mars Habitat Challenge winners, AI SpaceFactory; robotic builders by Foster & Partners; the first sustainable urban design for Mars, Mars City Design; the first spacesuit designed for the Mars surface; Christopher Raeburn‘s new fashion collection inspired by the red planet and much more.

A Multi-sensory Adventure

Helping to create this unique, design-orientated experience and creating a truly immersive encounter, is the L-ISA processor from L-Acoustics and a selection of top of the range L-Acoustics speakers. Adding to the visual experience, to create a distinctive and fully submerged environment. The revolutionary L-ISA technology takes the exhibition to the next level and gives visitors an additional element to engage with.
