Help us inspire futures

Through the exhibition programmes at our five sites we aim to deliver the Science Museum Group’s mission to ignite curiosity, share authentic stories, be open for all, reveal wonder and think big. We want our exhibitions to reflect the distinctive remit and character of our individual museums and speak to our visitors.

We welcome exhibition proposals that will support the Group’s aims and values, celebrating science, technology, engineering, maths and medicine and their impact on our lives, now and in the future.
