Explore 300,000 historic objects from the Science Museum Group Collection in our innovative collection management facility at the National Collections Centre. 

In late 2024, our collection will be accessible to the public for the first time in its new home. Sign up to be the first to know when our guided public tours become available to book.

Walk among hundreds of large objects—including a Spacelab 2 X-ray telescope carried into orbit by the US Space Shuttle Challenger, an iconic Glasgow Tramcar and, a revolutionary Leyland Titan double-decker bus—on a colourful floor grid, explore the aisles of over 30,000 metres of shelving containing objects from Stephen Hawking’s office, and even a toy duck that helped a spacecraft land on a comet.

Our guided public tours will take you from objects that explored the stratosphere to machines that plumbed the depths of our oceans
