'Science for the Nation is more than a chronological account of the museum's history, fascinating as that story is.  It also includes chapters on the museum staff and its library, buildings, collections, exhibitions and visitors...It is also an account of change...It is constantly changing and evolving, much like science itself.' - E & T
'It is an account with something new even for those well-versed in the museum's history.' - Life After the Museum Newsletter
'Successful in commemorating the Science Museum as an internationally important institution [...] It is a fitting and varied testament to the museum's first century and a half.' Richard Dunn, The Journal of BJHS
'...the Science Museum deserves credit for publishing a book that contributes to the study of museology, history of collections and the material culture of science.' Science for the Nation
