The Engineers gallery at the Science Museum in London celebrates our engineering heritage and showcase innovations through the global lens of the Queen Elizabeth Prize for Engineering—the world’s leading award for engineers—with current and past prize winners featured throughout.

Engineers shape the world that we live in, creating bold, ground-breaking innovations that respond to global challenges and improve billions of lives. But how much do we know about the people behind these innovations?

Human stories are at the heart of the Engineers gallery, where visitors can take a closer look at iconic objects such as the first digital camera, the cutting-edge CMR ‘Versius’ surgical robot arm and a miniature atomic clock that the entire GPS system depended upon.
