Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of
articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The
term "National Museum of Science and Industry" had been in use as
the Science Museum's subtitle since the early 1920s. The National
Railway Museum and National Photography Museum were later
established as "outstations." The Science Museum was run directly
by HM Government until 1984, when a Board of Trustees was
established under the National Heritage Act (1983) and NMSI was
adopted as a corporate title for the entire organisation. At this
point, NMSI no longer operated as part of a central government
department; instead, it now has the status of a non-departmental
public body, operating within the public sector but separately from
its associated sponsoring government department, the Department for
Culture, Media and Sport. The NMSI operates as a charity; it also
has a wholly owned subsidiary trading company, NMSI Trading
Limited, which was established in 1988.
