Land Securities has announced the Science Museum is to open its first-ever standalone pop-up store at Bluewater, Europe’s leading retail and leisure destination. Located on the Lower Thames Walk next to Reebok, the 1,300 sq ft store will be open from the beginning of November until December 31.
The Science Museum pop-up will stock a comprehensive range of gifts and merchandise.

Commenting on the selection of Bluewater for its first-ever standalone pop-up, Sam Mason, Commercial Director of the Science Museum, said: “Hugely popular with families, innovative and committed to delivering an engaging experience, Bluewater is the perfect host for our debut pop-up store. We are creating an experience that will get visitors excited about science, as well as providing some truly original gifts for Christmas.”
