Find out more about the Museum and our visitors.
“As a kid I loved coming to the Science Museum. It was really where I got my first interest in science and technology in a real way. The Science Museum inspired me to pursue science as a career and ultimately to become an astronaut. Careers in science are fantastic - I was lucky enough to become an astronaut, but even if I had not been I would still want to work within the realms of science.” British astronaut, Piers Sellers
