Science Museum at Wroughton

The Science Museum Group stores its reserve collections at Wroughton near Swindon, and at Blythe House in West Kensington.

The Wroughton site is also home to the Science Museum Library and Archives, open to the public by appointment only.

Like most museums, the Science Museum Group is able to display only a fraction of its collection at any one time. The remainder are stored until they are needed for new exhibitions, both at the museums with the Group, and at other institutions.

The Wroughton site is a busy, working storage facility. The stores are not open to the public apart from pre-booked research visits (limited in number).
