Science Museum Museums
Exhibition Road, South Kensington
The Science Museum is the world's pre-eminent science museum. It houses outstanding collections relating to science, technology and medicine, and is one of the most prestigious and respected organisations dedicated to the promotion of public science and technology. Our collections form an enduring record of scientific, technological, engineering and medical change since the eighteenth century.
The Science Museum has over 300,000 objects in its care, covering the entire history of western science, technology and medicine. The objects are historic artefacts and sources of evidence for science, technology and industry dating from prehistoric times to the present day. They vary in size from very large (such as airliners and industrial machinery) to extremely small (for example microchips and semiconductors). The objects also vary in complexity from simple hand tools to complex computers.
