The Whipple Museum of the History of Science holds an outstanding collection of scientific instruments and models relating to astronomy, navigation, surveying, calculating, medicine and much more.

Our schools programme offers a wide range of engaging cross-curricular sessions that cater to all levels and ages.

We can also offer outreach sessions using our handling collection.
