Stephen Hawking at Work

Explore incredible objects from Professor Stephen Hawking’s office in this special new display. 

Stephen Hawking at Work 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. 

Highlights of the display will include a rare copy of Hawking’s PhD thesis, his spectacles, which were specially adapted to aid communication, and even an invitation to the time travellers' party Hawking hosted.

Stephen Hawking at Work will tour the Science Museum Group’s museum, starting with the Science Museum in London in February 2022, before coming to Manchester in summer 2023. Sign up to our newsletter to find out more.
