A shot of the Making the Modern World gallery

Making the Modern World presents a journey through 250 years of change. Discover how science, technology, engineering and medicine have shaped the way we live, work, play and communicate as you explore the objects and stories in the gallery. Iconic objects that changed the world are arranged through the centre of the gallery. In the cases along the walls, you will find objects which represent people’s daily lives and feelings about science.
