II.1.5)Short description of the contract or purchase(s)

The Wellcome Collection, held by the Museum, is the most significant medical collection in the world. However the current Glimpses of Medical History and Science and Art of Medicine galleries are among the Museum’s least accessible spaces, with out-of-date approaches to the history of medicine and old-fashioned museological practices. Through the Medicine Gallery capital project, the Museum’s vision is to create a unique space for the understanding of medicine, providing the world’s foremost celebration of the history of medicine and medical research and engaging large audiences — national and international — with the social, political and historical contexts of biomedical science.
The new galleries will use well considered design, intelligent interactive displays and engaging participative experiences to reveal personal stories about how our lives have been transformed by changes in medicine and health over the last 400 years.
These landmark galleries, and an accompanying programme of activities, will combine the sophistication of the world’s greatest art galleries with the Science Museum’s expertise in contemporary science interpretation to deliver beautiful, collections-focused experiences that explore medicine as a major scientific and cultural force. They are premised on the conviction that our historic collections are as much about shaping the future as commemorating the past.

The Museum has selected a location for the new Medicine Gallery at the heart of the museum’s South Kensington site on the 1st floor. The project will be a strip out and refurbishment of c 3 000 m² of existing gallery space. The project scope currently includes the removal and infill of existing lifts and the creation of new lifts.

The Museum is looking to appoint a Graphic Designer to join the Medicine Galleries design team and deliver the full graphic design for the new Medicine Galleries.
