Science Gallery at Trinity College Dublin is a world first: a new type of venue where ideas meet and opinions collide.
The mission of Science Gallery Dublin is to ignite creativity and discovery where science and art collide through connecting, sharing and surprise. Science Gallery Dublin achieves this by encouraging the audience to discover, express and pursue their passion for science through an ever-changing programme of exhibitions, events and experiences.
In 2008, a car park in a forgotten corner of Trinity College Dublin was transformed into a living experiment called Science Gallery. Through a cutting-edge programme that ignites creativity and discovery where science and art collide, Science Gallery Dublin encourages young people to learn through their interests. Since opening in 2008, over two million visitors to the gallery have experienced over 37 unique exhibitions ranging from living art experiments to materials science and from the future of the human race to the future of play.
Science Gallery Dublin develops an ever-changing programme of exhibitions and events fuelled by the expertise of scientists, researchers, students, artists, designers, inventors, creative thinkers and entrepreneurs. The focus is on providing programmes and experiences that allow visitors to participate and facilitate social connections, always providing an element of surprise.
