Library, Archive and Collections
Our collections form an enduring record of scientific, technological and medical change since the eighteenth century.
The Science Museum Library is one of the world’s great research libraries for the history of science and technology. Its London home within Imperial College closed on 3 February 2014 and a new Research Centre with library facilities will open at the Science Museum in late 2015. Our Wroughton library is now open to the public and researchers on Fridays by prior appointment.

Our conservators work across a huge range of objects, with the aim to prevent any physical deterioration.
