Touring exhibitions

The Science Museum Group is world-renowned for its historic collections, awe-inspiring galleries and inspirational exhibitions. These exhibitions can now be yours to hire and display at your venue.

We tour different formats of exhibitions to meet the varying needs of partner venues. Our portfolio includes turnkey exhibitions and curated collections.

We also offer a new and innovative way to share exhibitions – a Blueprint Pack.

What is a Blueprint Pack?

Our new Blueprint Pack gives a venue our content, concept, designs and meticulously researched IP in order for you to reproduce a contemporary science exhibition in a way that allows you to take our research and ideas in new and exciting directions. The pack enables you to produce or source all the physical elements of the exhibition with no expensive shipping, no insurance cost, and no environmental concerns often associated with a traditional touring exhibition.

By taking our blueprints and developing them into your own exhibition you can feature new or local stories knowing that you have the reassurance of the high standards of the Science Museum’s exhibition at its core. Work in partnership with the Science Museum to create a unique exhibition never before seen and never again repeated!
