Exhibitions and Galleries
From iconic galleries like Exploring Space to award-winning newer additions to the museum like Mathematics: The Winton Gallery our galleries make the museum an inspiring place to explore. We also open temporary exhibitions throughout the year covering a range of topics from science and technology to history and photography.
Imagine if the displays at our great national museums never changed; no temporary exhibitions, the same objects on gallery and therefore the same ones in storage.
