The Science Museum is part of the Science Museum Group, the world’s leading group of science museums that share a world-class collection providing an enduring record of scientific, technological and medical achievements from across the globe. Over the last century the Science Museum, the home of human ingenuity, has grown in scale and scope, inspiring visitors with exhibitions covering topics as diverse as robots, code-breaking, cosmonauts and superbugs. 2020 marked a decade of transformation for the museum with the opening of the largest medical galleries in the world - Medicine: The Wellcome Galleries and Science City 1550-1800: The Linbury Gallery - the story of how London became a hub of discovery during 1550-1800. The Science Museum was named a winner of the prestigious Art Fund Museum of the Year prize for 2020

The Art Collection contains more than 8,000 works. Notable bequests include the Penn-Gaskell Collection (ballooning, aeronautics) and Woodcroft Collection (portraits from the Patent Office Museum). The museum continues to collect and commission artworks relating to the history of science, technology and medicine.
