Museum of the History of Science

The Museum of the History of Science’s Renaissance Globe Project public programme encourages visitors to explore the collection, discover key events in the history of science and learn about the traditional techniques of globe-making.

Catering for both families and adults, the activities have created a wide variety of artistic and intellectual interpretations that are gradually populating the giant globe in the Museum’s top gallery.
