An exhibit space and event venue designed by Trinity College to ignite creativity and discovery

A cultural experiment at the intersection of art and science, the space hosts an array of exhibitions, programs, and events. One day, you could learn about biomimicry in disease and another, you might walk into an amusement course exploring the future of play. Interactive elements mean children and adults can engage with the work and each other. Scientists are almost always on hand to explain their research and answer questions. The idea proved so popular that the creators have launched a Global Science Network with projects in Detroit, Bangalore, Melbourne, Venice, and London.

Time Out tip: Stick around for lunch at the gallery’s café, which serves seasonal sandwiches and coffee from a local micro-roaster.
