In the Science Museum’s augmented reality app Science Stories, the TV presenter and science enthusiast James May picks out his personal favourites from the exhibits in our Making the Modern World gallery and lets you know why he thinks they have earned their place in history.

The app features James as your own personal iPhone avatar for nine world-class exhibits in the gallery. Hear him explain stories and facts about the Puffing Billy, Model T Ford, Rolls Royce Merlin engine and other iconic objects, then test your knowledge with a quiz about what you have learned.

You can use the app at the Museum, or download for use at home.
