As the home of human ingenuity, the Science Museum aims to inspire visitors with award-winning exhibitions, iconic objects and stories of incredible scientific achievement.

With origins in the Great Exhibition of 1851, the museum continually strives to be the best place in the world for people to enjoy science. Our world-class collection forms an enduring record of scientific, technological and medical achievements from across the globe.

Among key objects on display are Caroline Herschel’s telescope (c.1795), Alan Turing’s Pilot ACE computer (1950) and the Apollo 10 capsule that went into lunar orbit in 1969.

Our amazing exhibitions, astounding galleries and creative blank canvas spaces combine to make the Science Museum a unique and inspiring London venue for corporate or private hire.
