The Science Museum is implementing new programmes of research and interpretation of its world-leading collections. Its Art and Contemporary Art collections form a central part of some of our most significant permanent galleries, such as Making the Modern World and Who Am I? and are planned to be a central interpretation strand for the new suite of Medical galleries. The success of our Cosmonauts and Ada Lovelace exhibitions, as well as our online offers, also shows the importance of the display of artworks for our audiences. The collections contain a highly diverse range of works made from the sixteenth to the twenty-first centuries. These include paintings, prints, drawings, sculpture and digital media artworks.
