Research our collection

Find out everything you need to know about visiting and researching the collection at the National Collections Centre.

Around 300,000 historic objects from the Science Museum Group Collection have been carefully moved into their new purpose-built home at the National Collections Centre, enabling us to bring together these historic objects under one roof for the first time for conservation, study and public access.

On these pages you can also discover how to request physical or virtual access to the collection, including our Library and Archive material.

You can also explore Research Help for more useful information and find out about donating an object to the collection.
