Science Museum Group

Go behind the scenes of the Science Museum Group.

Ahead of the COP26 climate summit, the UK Government announced a ban on petrol, diesel and hybrid cars from 2035. Curator Ben Russell explains more about the first mass-produced hybrid car, which recently joined the collection.

This morning, Prime Minister Boris Johnson launched the UK Year of Climate Action at the Science Museum. The museum’s Deputy Director Dr Julia Knights explains why the Science Museum Group will be a prominent scientific voice in preparations for the most important climate meeting on the planet.  

Over the last 250 years our way of life and Earth’s climate have changed dramatically. Read on as we explore some of these changes through objects in the Science Museum Group Collection.
