Ingenious


This website is an online resource from the Science Museum, the National Museum of Photography, Film & Television, and the National Railway Museum, which together form the National Museum of Science and Industry (NMSI).
Over 30,000 objects, images and pictures from the combined collections are accessible via the site, with the aim of 'Celebrating and exploring the many feats of human ingenuity that have shaped our lives'. The site is divided into sections: 'Read', offers articles across a range of subjects, with links to associated images, further readings, biographies and primary source materials; 'Debate' enables online discussions; 'See' has access to more than 30,000 images from the collection of the NMSI; and 'Create' offers the opportunity to build an image library.
