Because the Science Museum’s collections are so varied and we want to have time to talk through the possibilities with each group, we’d like to suggest individual meetings rather than an Open Day to explore how we might assist you with your research. If you would be interested in using the Science Museum’s resources, finding out more about using objects in your research or need advice on creating a small exhibition or display as one of the outcomes of your research, please contact us via PublicHistory@sciencemuseum.ac.uk.
