Science Museum Swindon
Few people know that around 92 per cent of the Science Museum’s collections are held in storage and are rarely seen by the general public, the large objects are stored on the breathtaking 545-acre Science Museum Swindon site.
These collections range across the whole spectrum of scientific and technological interest, from the giant Lockheed Constellation airliner to early computers, from bicycles to the massive Wood printing press, and from MRI scanners to the very first hovercraft.
The National Museum of Science & Industry is one of the world’s great museum families. Each year over 11 million visits, real and virtual, are made from around the globe to NMSI Museums and their websites. The family members are the Science Museum in London, the National Railway Museum in York, the National Media Museum in Bradford, Locomotion in Shildon, County Durham, and Science Museum Swindon.
