Science Museum Visit

10:30, Tuesday 17th September 2019.

Guided Tours of two new galleries:

SCIENCE CITY 1550–1800: THE LINBURY GALLERY

Revealing the quest for new ideas, knowledge and practical techniques that preoccupied London during this period of transformation, Science City 1550–1800 unites 3 extraordinary collections: the Science Museum Group’s scientific instruments, the King George III collection from King’s College London, and objects and artworks lent by the Royal Society.

MATHEMATICS: THE WINTON GALLERY The Science Museum’s bold and thought-provoking gallery, designed by Zaha Hadid Architects, examines the fundamental role mathematicians, their tools and ideas have played in building the world we live in. From war and peace to life, death, money, trade and beauty, the objects in Mathematics: The Winton Gallery reveal how mathematics connects to every aspect of our lives.

Together these collections chart the birth of understanding through experimentation and precision measurement as London became a globally important hub of trade, exploration and scientific enquiry.
