As the largest space event on Earth launches today, we’re diving into our galleries and collections to discover the objects and activities that tell the story of international space exploration.
Our world-class collection forms an enduring record of scientific, technological and medical achievements from across the globe. Come behind the scenes as we explore new object acquisitions and meet the conservation team.
To celebrate the opening of our free dance and science festival Antarctica Live, we look at five objects from our collection that helped humanity study and understand the icy continent.
Assistant Curator of Medicine, Imogen Clarke, takes us on a whistle-stop tour of the NHS’ 70 year history with 7 objects from our collection.
