Doctor Who’s science exhibition, Worlds of Wonder: Where Science Meets Fictions, will be displayed at Edinburgh’s National Museum of Scotland in December.
The exhibition, which currently resides in Liverpool, will showcase the science behind Doctor Who in an interactive and immersive way for fans of all ages. It will run from December 10 – April 30.
Alison Cromarty, the head of exhibitions and design at the National Museum of Scotland, said: “From the wonder of the science fiction to the big scientific topics it touches on, there is something for everyone”.

According to the website, it will include eight zones and will feature “a wealth of iconic props and sets, and a unique collection of behind-the-scenes resource materials”.
Designed for fans of all ages, the exhibition includes a TARDIS Tech room, an investigation into the science behind time travel, and a Monster Vault featuring iconic characters.
Doctor Who has had many Scottish connections in its (almost) 60 years on-screen. Three Scottish doctors have played the Gallifreyan: Sylvester McCoy, David Tennant, and Peter Capaldi.
Other Scottish actors, including Karen Gillan, Neve McIntosh, Michelle Gomez and Alan Cumming, have starred in the show. Steven Moffat, another Scot, was the showrunner from 2008-2017.
According to the official Doctor Who Twitter, the 10th Doctor and fan-favourite, David Tennant, will return to the show for its 60th Anniversary.
It was recently announced that Ncuti Gatwa will take on the role of the iconic character for season 14.
Gatwa will be the 4th Doctor from Scotland, but he will also make history as the first-ever black Doctor.
Tickets for ‘Doctor Who Worlds of Wonder: Where Science meets Fiction’ will go on sale this Autumn.
