At the Whipple Museum you will find a fascinating array of scientific instruments dating from the Middle Ages to the present day. Cambridge has long been a centre for scientific work. As well as large instruments, such as the 18th century Grand Orrery built by George Adams, and William Herschels Newtonian telescope, there are a number of themed cases. These contain many exhibits associated with a variety of scientific fields. Microscopes, telescopes and laboratory equipment demonstrate the vitality of past science, while the collections of pocket calculators and slide rules reflect how scientific instruments are important to us all.
