Science Museum - larger exhibits / store, Wroughton, Swindon

I remember the Science Museum in London from many happy and interesting visits as a child. Did you know that they also have a big place in Wiltshire - on the old RAF Wroughton - where some 18,000 to 20,000 exhibits that won't fit in to the London premises are stored.



Four hangars on the aerodrome are open - occasionally - to the public, or for organised groups. Two of them are given over to aircraft exhibits such as the Comet (which would fill the whole aircraft hall at South Kensington) and a third contains a wide variety of other transport vehicles - cars, buses, industrial, agricultural - as seen in the picture above. My thanks to Peter Goodearl for permission to use the picture above (not one of mine for once!) - and he has an excellent gallery of pictures here.

The Science Museum has updated its own site and many links to information about Wroughton ("Swindon") are now broken - but if you want to know more about when it's open [this link works at present].




At Well House Manor - from 12th May 2012 - The Well House Collection - a branch of the Museum of Melksham.
