The Science Museum Group is celebrating National Poetry Day for a second year (6 October 2022).
The Natural History Museum and Science Museum jointly hosted a meeting of experts yesterday (5 September 2022) to discuss ecosystem destruction and the climate emergency. Roger Highfield, Science Director at the Science Museum, and Tim Littlewood, Executive Director of Science at the Natural History Museum, reflect on what was discussed.
At the National Collections Centre, our dedicated Logistics team specialise in moving objects, working closely with the Conservation & Collections Care colleagues. As we prepare to move some of our largest objects into their new home, conservator Kirsten Strachan reflects on what it takes to carefully move these important items.
We pay tribute to scientist and inventor James Lovelock, who died yesterday, aged 103.
We want everyone to feel at home in the Science Museum Group’s sites, whether as colleagues or as visitors to our five museums, and there’s evidence to show that some people don’t see their identities reflected among our workforce and some content.
For a second year, we are inviting poets to share work inspired by our collection for our Poetry Project.
