The Science Museum is pleased to have received support from individuals, companies, trusts and the government, enabling us to realise the atmosphere ...exploring climate science gallery and the three-year Climate Changing... programme.

Principal Sponsors

All of us need energy to develop and grow. But to protect our planet we must produce less CO2. That’s why at Shell, we are working hard to build a new energy system while supporting a deeper understanding of climate science.

Siemens is proud to sponsor atmosphere - inspiring future scientists and engineers to answer the world’s toughest questions in search of a sustainable future.
