Go on a visual adventure to discover how the lower ground floor of a former warehouse has been transformed into a world-class gallery.
A visit to the museum’s new Special Exhibitions Gallery promises not only awe-inspiring science content, but also a spectacular setting—the atmospheric, lower ground floor of the museum’s historic New Warehouse.
As the Special Exhibitions Gallery at the museum nears completion, Project Director Anna Hesketh explains how the project’s real beauty lies in the power of combining the original and the modern to pave the way for a sustainable gallery of the future.
At the heart of the Museum of Science and Industry lie an exceptionally important historic site and a rich collection of objects and archives—caring for both occasionally presents challenges.
If you visited the museum between April and June this year, you may well have seen a buzz of activity around the site. Project Collections Information Officer Rupinder Sandhu explains what’s been going on.
