About Science Gallery
Pioneered by Trinity College Dublin, Science Gallery is a new kind of space where art and science collide--a porous membrane between the university and the city. Primarily oriented towards young adults between the ages of 15 and 25 years old, Science Gallery develops an ever-changing program of exhibitions, events and experiences on broad themes linking science, technology and the arts.

Since opening in 2008, Science Gallery Dublin has attracted over 3 million visitors and become one of Ireland's top 5 free cultural attractions. To date, exhibitions have ranged from light to love and from contagion to the future of the human species, and have travelled extensively throughout Europe, Asia and North America.

The diverse and provocative exhibitions encourage people to discover, express and pursue their interests in a friendly, sociable environment. Having received significant international recognition for its approach, Science Gallery is currently developing a Global Science Gallery Network. The Global Science Gallery Network was launched in 2012 with the support of Google and the aim of establishing Science Gallery locations in eight cities around the world by 2020, with the first planned to open at King's College London in 2018.
