The Science Gallery Dublin is part of the network of museums hosted by Trinity College. The building stands apart from most galleries in that it has no permanent gallery, instead throwing all its clout behind a given exhibition at a given time. The art on show is intended to reflect certain elements of science as it is manifested in the modern consciousness, whether it is medicine or cosmology, communication or electronics.
Something of a cutting-edge idea, the Science Gallery is presented to visitors as part of what is hoped to become an ambitious, globally situated network of such galleries. The aspiration to have seven such galleries around the world by 2020 stems from the fact that visitor numbers to the Dublin gallery alone have been huge – an estimated 1.8 million people have been entertained by the knowledge-inspired creative displays, artwork and graphical designs shown there.
