Anyone with an interest in the history of science and technology will likely enjoy exploring the online collections of the Science Museum Group, which consists of five museums located in the UK. Their digital collections currently contain more than 250,000 objects and over 29,000 archival documents, all drawn from the Science Museum Group's vast collections of approximately 7.3 million items. From the homepage, visitors can search and filter the collections, explore by themes such as medicine or railways, and see a selection of collection highlights, which may include diverse categories such as cinematography, toys and games, mathematics, and creative industries. Entries for individual items generally include a brief description explaining its significance, classification details, links to related objects or people, and whether the item is currently on display at one of the group's museums. Most of the collection images are available to download under a Creative Commons Noncommercial license, and the Science Museum Group encourages visitors to use and reuse their collection data.
