Science Gallery Dublin

Science Gallery Dublin’s mission is to ignite creativity and discovery, where science and art collide.

Their vision is to catalyse the creation of the world’s leading network for involving, inspiring and transforming curious minds through science. They achieve this by encouraging their audience to discover, express and pursue their passion for science through an ever-changing programme of exhibitions, events and experiences, all vividly brought together at the dynamic intersection where science and art collide.

Constantly Inspiring Generations, the cutting-edge programme at Science Gallery Dublin encourages young people to learn through their interests. Since opening in 2008, over 3.8 million visitors to the gallery have experienced 48 unique exhibitions, ranging from design and violence to light and love, and from contagion and intimacy to the futures of the human species and life at the extremes. Our programme is fuelled by the expertise of scientists, researchers, students, artists, designers, inventors, creative thinkers and entrepreneurs. The focus is on providing experiences that allow visitors to participate and facilitate social connections, always providing an element of surprise.

In 2012, the Science Gallery Network was launched with the support of This initiative oversees the development of Science Gallery projects in locations all around the world, with the first new gallery opened in London in 2018 and activity in Atlanta, Bengaluru, Detroit, Melbourne, Rotterdam and Venice also underway.

For almost twelve years, Science Gallery Dublin has been a window into Trinity College providing a diverse range of exhibitions challenging our minds and thrilling us visually. Science Gallery has worked with individuals, companies, artists in residence and other stakeholders to bring these questions to life and guide the public towards the answer with their staff of mediators. Science Gallery is one part of the New Generations element of our Inspiring Generations campaign focussing on the development of people, their skills and maximising their potential.
