The Royal Institution (RI), founded in 1799, is the oldest independent research body in the world. The building includes a research laboratory with resident scientists, a museum with historical scientific collections and facilities which support the RI’s extensive public outreach programme.
Steinway & Sons was founded in 1853 by German immigrant Henry Engelhard Steinway in a Manhattan loft. The Company is dedicated to making the finest pianos in the world. The instruments are renowned for their quality and are extensively used on concert platforms by the world’s leading pianists.
During our visit we shall learn something about the history of the Company and visit the Restoration Centre and Showrooms. It should be quite fascinating – you may be invited to give a recital!
