About Curious Science

The History

Curious Science is the brainchild of David Burns, who transformed a small antique medical instrument business started in 1983, into a 3,000 square foot warehouse in Commercial Way, Park Royal. Over the last 27 years David has supplied numerous collectors and museums with rare and facinating antiques, and has now put his extensive knowledge of the history of science and medicine at the service of the film and TV industry.

We now have various film sets available for all types of filming, 7 days per week
