Objects in space

Our new exhibition displays the largest British meteorite for the first time.

Objects in Space showcases what is believed to be Britain’s largest meteorite, never previously seen in public, alongside letters and books charting the history of scientific interest in meteorites. The exhibition also contains unique artworks by Damien Hirst and Cornelia Parker, including a Hirst Spot painting which features the famous Beagle 2 spacecraft as its centre spot.

Read our blog post for more information about the items on display.
