The Faraday Museum

Museum of science

Explore the world-changing science of the Ri since 1799 in the Faraday Museum.

With displays spread across three floors, the stuff of science is woven throughout the Ri building. In fact, wherever you go, you’ll discover the instruments and people that have made science work for the last two hundred years.

Housing the majority of the exhibition, the theme of the lower ground floor is experimentation.

From the odds and ends that became the first electrical transformer to the tube that told us why the sky is blue, view the actual objects Ri scientists built and used in some of the world’s most famous experiments.

Discover the key role that the Ri has played in the development of the modern world – from the thermos flask to the device that saved the lives of countless miners.
