History of the Science Museum in London

The Science Museum as an institution has existed for over 150 years. It began in the Great Exhibition of 1851, in Hyde Park. The Great Exhibition's success prompted the building and opening of the South Kensington Museum in 1857, where the V & A (Victoria & Albert) Museum now stands. Five years later, science collections housed in the South Kensington Museum were moved across to Exhibition Road, to make room for other collections.

In the decades that followed, a science library was established, and a Science Collections Director was appointed. But it wasn't until the early 1900s when the Science Museum moniker was officially chosen.

Since then, the original location has been expanded greatly, incorporating new blocks and replacing older architecture. It also began leaning away from its professional focus to appeal to the general public.

Sister sites were opened both nationally and internationally throughout the 20th Century, and the Science Museum's newest wing, the Wellcome Wing, was opened at the turn of the millennium by Queen Elizabeth II.
