What is 1001 Inventions?

Discovering the Past, Inspiring a Better Future

1001 Inventions is a leading and award-winning international science and cultural heritage brand reaching over 100 million people around the world.

1001 Inventions uncovers a thousand years of scientific and cultural achievements from Muslim Civilisation from the 7th century onwards, and how those contributions helped create the foundations of our modern world.

Through its award-winning educational programmes, books, block-buster exhibitions, live shows, films and learning products, 1001 Inventions showcases the contributions of inspirational men and women of different faiths and cultures in a civilisation that spread from Spain to China.

1001 Inventions have produced a world-class range of exciting and engaging educational experiences, productions, products and resources that are all extensively researched by academics and designed industry experts.
