Museum History of Science
The Museum of the History of Science is home to an amazing collection of early scientific instruments and artefacts. The museum is both a department of the University of Oxford and an active public museum, offering a programme of family-friendly events and gallery tours. One of the museum’s star attractions is a blackboard with equations written by Albert Einstein during a lecture he gave in 1931 – Einstein-related gifts are a popular souvenir. For those unable to come to Oxford, online versions of the Museum’s exhibitions are available here.
