Science and Industry Museum
Science and Industry Museum

The Science and Industry Museum is devoted to inspiring visitors through ideas that change the world, from the Industrial Revolution to today and beyond. It is a story that the Museum is uniquely placed to tell – on the site of the oldest surviving passenger railway station, in the heart of the world’s first industrial city, today alive with innovative discoveries in science and technology. The Museum combines the distinctive appeal of the historic site with a vibrant contemporary science programme, making connections between the past and the present, between scientific theory and real-world applications.
