Winchester College - Guided tour of the Science Collections

Winchester College, College Street, Winchester, Hampshire, SO23 9NA

Join the keeper of the school’s science archive on the specially arranged viewing of a fascinating and wide range of teaching apparatus & natural history specimens, from 18th century microscopes to our present day Periodic Table installation. PRE-BOOKING ESSENTIAL

This excellent 45 minute tour with the keeper of the school’s science archive provides visitors with a unique opportunity to view an extensive range of science items - including teaching apparatus and natural history specimens. There are historical pieces such as 18th century microscopes as well as a present day Periodic Table installation.

There are very limited numbers available on the two tours, and last year they were booked up fast. So if you love science make sure you book early to avoid disappointment! The tour is unsuitable for young children.
