Posted Filed under

Come face to face with a Robot of Death, an Imperial Dalek and more. 

With Doctor Who’s 60th anniversary around the corner, there’s a growing number of exhibitions for fans to visit. From Riverside Studios celebrating the early years of the show, to Weston-Super-Mare showing off 60 years of Doctor Who art.

Now there’s a new destination to add to the list: Gunnersbury Park Museum.

Set to Stun

Set To Stun celebrates science fiction film and television via the west London artisans, artists and crafts people who brought it all to life.

From laser beams to paranoid androids, exploring faraway planets to alien invasions – visitors will get to enjoy an engaging and interactive showcase of the sets, costumes, prosthetics, props, and artistic visualisations that went into British Sci-Fi classics, including Doctor Who, the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and Red Dwarf. We’ll also bring the story up to date with a motion capture interactive.

Set To Stun

The exhibits include a robot from ‘The Robots of Death’ and an Imperial Dalek from ‘Remembrance.’ Other treats include Marvin from The Hitchhikers’ Guide to the Galaxy and a moon buggy from Star Cops.

Set To Stun runs at the Gunnersbury Park Museum between 20th October 2023 and 2nd June 2024.

Entry is free and the exhibition is open Tuesday – Sunday, 10am – 4.30pm with no booking required.
