The Winton Gallery - Maths Exhibition at The Science Museum, London

 

London Science Museum Exterior

 

The Winton Gallery, the permanent Mathematics exhibition at the Science Museum in London reveals the story of how mathematics has defined our world.The exhibition was designed by the world-famous Zaha Hadid Architects, this exceptional gallery spans 400 years of human innovation and brings the history of  maths to life through the design and architecture of its displays.

Created as a wind tunnel for the biggest object in the gallery – a Handley Page aircraft from 1929 – the space follows the lines of airflow around it in a stunning display of imagined aerodynamics. Other objects in the gallery range from 19th-century human skulls, covering a time-span from the Renaissance to the present day & fascinating hand-held mathematical instruments. 

This gallery has been made possible by the largest individual donation that has ever been made to the Science Museum, an amazing sum of £5 million gifted from David and Claudia Harding.

The Winton Gallery features over two floors, covers subjects Maths & Physics & is suitable for students 12-16 years of age & adults.
