Time affects us all. Scientist from Isaac Newton and Albert Einstein have tried to understand the nature of it, while some of our most popular fictions, from H.G. Wells to Doctor Who, are rooted in it.

We live in a world that seems to get busier and busier. Our work days and school days are controlled by time. We wear time on our wrists, can buy minutes on our phones and pause time on our TVs.  

Time Lab encourages us to think about our relationship with time and how it affects our lives. Museum collections are full of objects from moments in our history that tell the story of our lives. Time Lab is a chance to take a minute and reflect on the moments that are most important to you.
