Behind the Scenes at the Museum
Join our experts as they put a selection of our working scientific instruments through their paces. It's rare we have a chance to handle these objects, so we hope you enjoy seeing them come to life as much as we did.
As a registered charity, we make our Collections freely available for everyone to enjoy and offer a wide range of activities for our communities.
Thanks to your generosity — last year our visitors contributed £41,000 in donations — we have been able to support the Museum’s Collections and continue public events and education programmes.
We are still taking care of the building and exhibits while we are closed — and we are already planning new talks, exhibitions and learning workshops for when we re-open. That is why we continue to rely on visitors just like you to support us.
