Programme submissions

Do you have a great idea for a science-themed exhibition or display? In this page, you’ll find information on the type of proposals we are currently seeking and how to submit your ideas.

Our mission is to inspire futures. One of the ways we do this is through a diverse programme of temporary exhibitions, installations, and immersive experiences. The National Science and Media Museum explores the transformative impact of image and sound technologies on our lives.

To ensure that each exhibition or display is of the highest quality, mutually beneficial, and fits with our strategic plans, we work to several criteria. Each proposal will be judged against the Science Museum Group’s Mission and Values and Group Exhibition Strategy, as well as the National Science and Media Museum’s site-specific criteria.

Explore the information below to check whether your exhibition proposal fits with our priorities.

Exhibition criteria

We have several exhibition spaces at the National Science and Media Museum, each hosting an exhibition or display with a different focus.
