Collection area: Technical and Scientific Principles

The "basic sciences of technology" have formed the foundation of the collections since the museum was founded. The long-term, predominant image of technology as an applied science has since given way to a more complex idea of the origins and applications of technology. Astronomy, physics and chemistry help us to understand the macrocosmic and microcosmic structure of the world.
