Delivering life-enhancing experiences

The Science Museum Group (SMG) comprises four museums: Science Museum (London), National Railway Museum (York), National Science and Media Museum (Bradford) and the Museum of Science and Industry (Manchester). One of SMG’s objectives is to deliver life-enhancing experiences.

In 2009, SMG identified how it will measure its performance in delivering life-enhancing experiences in order to continually develop and improve its offer. This document outlines what is meant by a life-enhancing experience for the audience and how such experiences are planned for and measured.
