Did you know?

The Science Museum origins lie in the Great Exhibition of 1851. Nothing like it had ever been seen before and following on from the phenomenal success of the Great Exhibition, part of the profit was used to set up the South Kensington Museum. Both the Science Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum were originally known as the South Kensington Museum, which opened in 1858. This museum housed art and science objects and the collections of grew so large that by 1893 the collections were split. The Science Museum was officially established on 26 June 1909.
