The giant hangars at the Science Museum in Wroughton have reopened until the end of August after an unexpected closure for structural surveys.
The museum’s holds a vast range of large objects including the massive Lockheed 749 Constellation airliner that toured with the Rolling Stones in the 1970s, the world record breaking Lotus sports bike, the famous Blue Peter 1 lifeboat, the museum’s newest acquisition a 1958 fire engine and some icons from recent BBC2 TV series the Peoples Museum.
In total the Wroughton site now stores 18,000 large itmes from the National Collections of the Science Museum, London. The objects span the whole spectrum of scientific and technological interest for all ages, and with so much to see there is always something new to discover.
On the weekend of the 26th, 27th and 28th the museum will host a weekend event with nature, the environment and exploring all things green as the focus.
