We can’t wait to see you this Christmas.

Our museum tells the stories of the extraordinary human achievement and technological advances that have helped humanity overcome challenges throughout history. From Helen Sharman’s iconic space suit to Amy Johnson’s marvellous Gipsy Moth aeroplane, these incredible stories help ignite curiosity, encourage scientific endeavour and spark the imagination. 

Support us online during the closure—explore science and technology gifts and gadgets at the Science Museum online shop.
