3D: printing the future

Imagine a world without limits, where any object can be produced at the drop of a hat.

Recent advances in 3D printing mean that more people than ever can make their ideas real. This burst of creativity has created millions of interesting things – some of them could even change your life. No wonder 3D printing is always in the news. But are the stories accurate, or even true? Let us guide you around the hype of 3D printing, as we reveal this technology’s real-life potential.

Discover how innovators use 3D printers to turn computer data into physical objects that could change your life. The exhibition displays an explosion of over 600 printed objects, revealing how 3D printers inspire creativity and ground-breaking design.

Following the success of the London display 3D: Printing the Future is now available to hire in the form of a ‘Blueprint Pack’ allowing you to print your own exhibition.

 

Collider: Step inside the world's greatest experiment

The award-winning Collider exhibition is now on an international tour across Europe, Asia and Australia. 

‘God’ particles, time travel, big bangs and mini black holes.

The launch of CERN’s Large Hadron Collider (LHC) and the discovery of the Higgs boson have captured the public’s imagination like few other scientific endeavours.

The Science Museum’s new touring exhibition transports visitors to the LHC to see the project through the eyes of the people who have designed and engineered it. By allowing them to meet some of the world’s most ambitious scientists and engineers we demystify complex questions and help visitors to make sense of the headlines we will all be reading in the future.

Availability of this exhibition is limited. Email

Only in England: Photographs by Tony Ray-Jones and Martin Parr

Fascinated by the eccentricities of English social customs, Tony Ray-Jones spent the latter half of the 1960s travelling across England, photographing what he saw as a disappearing way of life.

Humorous yet melancholy, these works had a profound influence on photographer Martin Parr, who has now made a new selection including over 50 previously unseen works from the National Media Museum’s Ray-Jones archive. Shown alongside The Non-Conformists, Parr’s rarely seen work from the 1970s, this selection forms a new touring exhibition which demonstrates the close relationships between the works of these two important photographers.

Available to hire from July 2015.
