Due to the nationwide coronavirus restrictions in England, the Science Museum Group’s libraries and archives are closed to the public until further notice. 

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.
