At the National Collections Centre, our dedicated Logistics team specialise in moving objects, working closely with the Conservation & Collections Care colleagues. As we prepare to move some of our largest objects into their new home, conservator Kirsten Strachan reflects on what it takes to carefully move these important items.

We want everyone to feel at home in the Science Museum Group’s sites, whether as colleagues or as visitors to our five museums, and there’s evidence to show that some people don’t see their identities reflected among our workforce and some content.

To mark National Tree Week, colleagues from across the Science Museum Group gathered at the National Collections Centre in Wiltshire to help plant 1,000 trees.

To mark Black History Month we’re exploring the story behind one of our most iconic objects on display, the Model T-Ford, and the relationship of this ground-breaking automobile with the Black British community in East London in the 1950s and 1960s.
