Trinity College Dublin

Science Gallery

The ground and first floors of the Naughton Institute house a completely new kind of centre for science - the Science Gallery.

The Science Gallery is a public venue inviting everyone to engage with science and technology and its impacts on our everyday lives. It is a vibrant, social space where ideas around science, technology and innovation can be exchanged, shared, discussed and given a context that opens up these fields to new audiences. Shows, debates, discussion, music, drama and comedy all stimulate scientific conversation across the whole community.

The Science Gallery was developed from an original idea of Prof Mike Coey, CRANN's former deputy director. CRANN refined the Science Gallery concept, developed the business plan, and helped with the fundraising and recruitment. The Founding Director of the Science Gallery is Dr Michael John Gorman who has led the development of the Science Gallery and its programme of exhibitions and events.
