On this half day trip delegates heard about the work that geographers are doing to uncover the histories hidden in the Science Museum stores at Blythe House. Delegates also had the opportunity to take guided tours of the stores and see some of the many objects not currently on display. The collections of the Science Museum offers particular challenges to researchers. This visit offered the opportunity to discuss ways in which historical geographers can engage with material culture as well as explore a world renowned science, technology, medicine and engineering collection.
