The Science Museum’s world-class library collection is stored at our Wroughton site where we have books and journals on the history and biography of science, technology and medicine and their social impact.

Our original works include books, journals, patents, trade literature, directories and maps charting the world-wide development of science, engineering and medicine from the fifteenth to the twenty-first century.
