Best of London for 9 year olds ?

I'd like to know the best places in and around London to take my 9 year old son to. Like most boys his age, he likes activities and places that intreague.

Any advise would be welcome.

My son really enjoyed the Old Operating Theater. It had a definite gross factor and yet highly educational. He also enjoyed the Clink Museum and the Golden Hinde. As to regular museums he enjoyed The Transport Museum, which puts me into a coma, but he found it fun pretending to drive stuff. He also had a good time at the Natural History museum. Though not educational in the strict sense of the term, he loves watching street performers in Covent Garden. He could spend all afternoon there, and of course, no trip to London is complete without a stop at Forbidden Planet.

He should enjoy the Science Museum - particularly the area called Launchpad which is full of interactive exhibits that make the museum experience a bit more fun than usual for the average youngster.
