The Science Museum

The Science Museum was founded in 1857 as part of the South Kensington Museum, and gained independence in 1909. Today the Museum is world renowned for its historic collections, awe-inspiring galleries and inspirational exhibitions.

“As a kid I loved coming to the Science Museum. It was really where I got my first interest in science and technology in a real way. The Science Museum inspired me to pursue science as a career and ultimately to become an astronaut. Careers in science are fantastic - I was lucky enough to become an astronaut, but even if I had not been I would still want to work within the realms of science.” British astronaut, Piers Sellers
