License our brand

Science Museum Group Enterprises Ltd handles the licensing programme for the Science Museum brand, the National Railway Museum and The Flying Scotsman. Each programme closely reflects our brand values, with royalties from products sold helping fund and support our museums.

Science Museum

The Science Museum’s gift range has been the market leader since its launch over ten years ago, with distribution across the high street in independents, grocers and department stores.

Other licensed products include gadgets, toys, apparel, vending machine capsules and programming kits. There are opportunities available in other categories.

All of our branded products have a scientific basis and aim to create interest in science, technology, engineering and maths. All products contain a fun learning element and include science information sheets and educational content.

National Railway Museum

The National Railway Museum is the biggest of its type in the world. Its permanent displays and collections are the most comprehensive and significant in their field, illustrating the history of the British railways and railway engineering from the industrial revolution to the present day.

The National Railway Museum archive includes a fabulous collection of advertising posters charting the history of rail, as well as a vast selection of railway memorabilia including railway passes, luggage tags and engineering drawings.

We also look after the licensing programme for some of the most iconic locomotives of the world such as the Mallard, Duchess of Hamilton and the Rocket.

The Flying Scotsman

The most famous locomotive in the world, Flying Scotsman represents a golden age in British design and engineering. This beacon of modern achievement was the first steam locomotive to travel non-stop from London to Edinburgh and the first to achieve an authenticated 100mph in the UK.

Now lovingly restored and making an eagerly-anticipated return to the track with a two-year UK-wide tour, there is great affinity for the locomotive both at home and abroad in key territories such as Japan, USA, Canada, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand and Germany.

The licensing programme for Flying Scotsman has been running successfully for many years, highlighting the evergreen character of the brand. Current licensed products include ale, whisky, collectibles, memorabilia, pre-school toys, DVDs, greeting cards and stationery.
