The Science Museum has ambitious plans for the future which can only be realised through the support of generous individuals who share our vision.
We have a long history of working in partnership with philanthropists to deliver innovative new galleries, major capital campaigns, and learning and outreach activities both within the museum and at schools across the UK.

Most recently, David and Claudia Harding made the opening of our brand-new Mathematics: The Winton Gallery possible. Since it was formally unveiled in December 2016, the gallery has helped turn a niche subject into a major draw at the museum attracting over 23,000 visitors a week.
‘We are proud to be associated with this project... this gallery will inspire more children to study maths and find it less frightening and more enticing.’
