Science Museum closed from this evening

To all our supporters,

Our mission is to inspire futures. But right now we need to focus on today and on the health and welfare of our visitors and colleagues as the nation comes together to deal with the threat of coronavirus.

Following discussions with the Government we have decided that from this evening (17 March) and until further notice, we will close all five of our museums in the Science Museum Group to the public.

While our doors will be closed for a while, our incredible collection – and the inspirational stories it contains – remains open to you online. We’ll also put our creativity to use in finding new ways to ignite your curiosity and lift your spirits during some difficult days ahead.

Given the uncertainty we are all facing, we don’t yet know when our museums will re-open. If you have tickets to upcoming events, we’ll be in contact soon.

You can keep in touch with us through our website and social media channels (Twitter, Facebook and Instagram).

We can’t wait to welcome back old friends, and ignite the curiosity of many more who haven’t yet had the chance to visit us, when we re-open our museums.

For the time being, stay safe and take care.

Science Museum Group
