The pop-up store, which opens at the beginning of November and will run until 31 December, will feature an immersive experience for guests, with demonstrations of experiments, robots and gadgets taking place daily in the store. 

Guests will also be able to test drive the new Anki Drive robot cars, walk alongside a new generation of robots and participate in science experiments. The Science Museum’s pop-up store will be stocked with gifts and merchandise for shoppers to purchase.

Land Securities-owned Bluewater dealt direct with Appear Here, which acted on behalf of the Science Museum, as part of the deal securing the pop-up outlet.

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."

Russell Loveland, portfolio director at Land Securities, added: "This exclusive new store from the Science Museum is a great addition to Bluewater this Christmas. An original idea, its focus on entertaining and involving guests in the experience is a great complement to our own ethos. 

"It is also indicative of our commitment to continually evolving and innovating at Bluewater to deliver a unique offer."
