EXPO STORIES

Many science and technology museums are an offspring of the Great Exhibitions of the 1800s and 1900s, all descending from the 1851 Great Exhibition in London. The habit of exhibiting for the public the latest inventions and milestones in the history of science and industry helps to lay the foundations for a museum culture related to the fields of science and technology. Institutions such as the Science Museum in London, the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago and the Aquarium of Milan - just to name a few - are born as a direct result of World Fairs.
