Its collections, in the fields of science, technology, engineering, medicine, design and enterprise, transport and media, are the largest, most comprehensive and most significant in their field anywhere in the world.
SMG incorporates the Science Museum, the Science Museum Library and the Wellcome collections of the history of medicine at South Kensington; the Museum of Science and Industry at Manchester, the National Railway Museum at York; the National Media Museum at Bradford, the National Railway Museum at Shildon; and Concorde 002 with its associated exhibition at Yeovilton.
