This is Britain's national museum of science and technology, founded in 1857. Its collections include large and small exhibits, with many hands-on activities. The permanent galleries cover such topics as flight, robotics, space exploration, IT, engineering and medicine (the latter largely helped by the collection of Henry Wellcome). Among its larger items are Stephenson's Rocket, several iconic aircraft and the Apollo 10 Command Module.
