A number of guest authors, from scientists to artists, contribute to our blog, taking you behind the scenes, exploring the incredible objects in our collection, our award-winning exhibitions and the scientific achievements making headlines today.

As part of our season of events celebrating 150 years of the periodic table, we’ve invited chemists from the University of Cambridge to display their work showcasing the chemistry of colour. Researcher Tom Parton shares more.

In light of our current exhibition The Last Tsar: Blood and Revolution, rare disease expert, Dr Matthew Lumley, explains how the future is much brighter for people living with haemophilia today.

Conservator Marisa Kalvins has been busy restoring damaged objects set to go on display in our upcoming Medicine Galleries, including this 18th century shaving bowl. She reveals more about the intricate process and explains why repairs are important to an object’s history.

Dr. Heather Kappes from the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) investigates how and why we spend our money the way we do, as part of a Live Science residency at the Science Museum.

With less than a year before we open the doors to our brand new Medicine Galleries, we take a look behind the scenes to see what conservators Marisa and Adriana have been working on.
