Join us to discover how our ancestors used intriguing astrolabes to scan the skies and read the rhythm of the universe.

Find out how to tell the time with an astrolabe — and try it yourself on one of our special astrolabes.

It's free entry: our astrolabe experts will be in the Top Gallery on Saturday 26 November, Saturday 3 December and Saturday 10 December, with talks starting at 12.15pm, 2.15pm, and 4.15pm.

Pick the date and time that works for you from the schedule, and drop in to see our astrolabes in action.

And if you'd like a reminder, you can book a free ticket to visit the Museum at that time.

See you there.
