Dana Research Centre and Library

Due to coronavirus restrictions in England, the Dana Research Centre and Library is closed to the public until 20 May 2021. From this date, the library will reopen with social distancing measures in place for pre-booked appointments on Thursdays and Fridays. Please contact us via email to book an appointment.  

While the Dana Research Centre and Library is temporarily closed, our collection⁠—and the inspirational stories it contains⁠—remains open online. You can find further information about the archives we care for via our online collection, the archive catalogue, the Science Museum library catalogue and the National Railway Museum library catalogue

We offer a free enquiry service to help you find out more about the items in the Science Museum Group Collection. Please contact us via email. We normally aim to respond to enquiries within 20 working days, however responses may take longer at the moment due to COVID-19.
