Stephen Hawking At Work

About

Explore incredible objects from Professor Stephen Hawking’s office, including some never seen by the public before.

Our new special display will give an insight into the working life of the world-renowned theoretical physicist. Come and marvel at the extraordinary contents of Hawking’s office which was acquired for the nation by the Science Museum Group in May 2021.  

Highlight objects going on display for the first time include a rare copy of Hawking’s PhD thesis, his wheelchair and Hawking’s most treasured office possession—a blackboard filled with academic doodles and jokes.
