On now

This exhibition, featuring a selection of over 70 celebrated and rarely-displayed objects from the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences vast and diverse collection, explores what makes a museum object an icon in the 21st century.

From a grand concert piano to a humble elephant statue that survived the great Garden Palace fire of 1882; from Sir Howard Floreys penicillin samples to a cochlear implant; from an ancient Greek drinking cup to the Apple 1 computer; many of the objects are leading examples of human creativity and ingenuity, and have played a significant role in shaping society and creating a better world.

This diverse array of objects are explored through themes including luxury, celebrity, status, spirituality, value and genius. You are invited to consider and question what makes something iconic.
