Time Traveller's Invitation on display at the Science Museum

Time Traveller's Invitation on display at the Science Museum

February 19, 2022

I’m excited to announce that one of the two Time Traveller’s Invitation prints given to Stephen Hawking in 2013 is currently on display at London’s Science Museum. It is part of a fascinating collection of objects from Prof. Hawking’s office that was acquired by the Science Museum last year.

From the Science Museum’s website:

In a once-in-a-lifetime acquisition for the nation, the remarkable contents of Professor Stephen Hawking’s office – including his personal reference library, innovative wheelchairs and communications equipment, medals, memorabilia and even the office furniture – will join the Science Museum Group Collection.
A treasure trove of archive papers and personal objects belonging to the late Professor Stephen Hawking – from personalised wheelchairs and scientific bets signed with Hawking’s thumbprint to his seminal papers on theoretical physics and his scripts from The Simpsons – have been acquired by the Science Museum Group and Cambridge University Library.

 


The print and other items are on display in London until June 12th this year as a free exhibition. The collection is expected to tour the National Science and Media Museum in Bradford, the National Railway Museum in York and Locomotion in Shildon, County Durham, during 2023 and 2024.

The other print given to Prof. Hawking was auctioned at Christie’s for £11,250See our open edition of the print.

In addition to our work now being part of the Science Museum's collection, our Being for the Benefit of Mr Kite print is also part of the V&A Museum's permanent collection.
