Research and public history

The Science Museum supports a thriving programme of research which aims to promote new ways of understanding our collections, audiences and exhibitions.

Our researchers come from a range of academic disciplines who engage with the specific practices of the museum as well as more theoretical work on the themes of historical and contemporary science, technology and medicine. 

The Research and Public History Department supports grant applications led by the Science Museum and partner universities as well as a growing programme of conferences, workshops and other events.
