"It may have 'science' in the title, but each exhibition at the gallery proves it to be the most creative, innovative and artistic venue in Ireland." - Shane Hegarty, Irish Times, April 2011
A place where science and art collide
Science Gallery is a world first. A new type of venue where today's white-hot scientific issues are thrashed out and you can have your say. A place where ideas meet and opinions collide. Since opening in 2008, over one million of you have visited us in Dublin - ranking us amongst the top ten free cultural attractions in Ireland. We're all about opening science up to passionate debate and want your opinion.
How do you want science to develop? What direction should it go in? Let us know what you think - get in touch!
Visiting Science Gallery
Unlike most galleries, we don't have a permanent collection. This means that there is always something new to see, but it also means that between exhibitions (which can be a gap of up to three weeks), only our shop and café remain open. So if you are planning to visit an exhibition, to avoid disappointment, make sure to check our website for exhibition dates before travelling to Science Gallery. And remember, the exhibition is always closed on Mondays. To stay in the loop, subscribe for email updates on our homepage.
Events at Science Gallery
We have loads of new events every week - visit our events listings to find out what's coming up. Throughout each exhibition, we've got events, talks, debates and workshops, giving you a chance to get involved. Exhibitions are free and so are some events. Subscribe to our mailing list to be among the first to find out what is coming up in the gallery.
The Global Science Gallery Network
In 2011, we received a gift from Google to launch the Global Science Gallery Network - a network of eight Science Gallery locations developed in partnership with leading universities in urban centres worldwide by 2020. In addition to Dublin and London, cities we're looking at include New York, Bangalore, Singapore and Melbourne. To realise this ambition, Science Gallery has established Science Gallery International (SGI), a charitable organisation that is driving the development of the GSGN with limited seed funding.
