Science History Institute

Science is all around us. It’s not just found in the laboratory. It’s in the water we drink, the air we breathe, the clothes we wear, and the earth beneath our feet.

At our museum, you can explore the amazing successes, astonishing failures, and strange surprises behind the science that shapes our world.

Be sure to check out BOLD, our new exhibition exploring the vivid histories behind the dramatic transition to synthetic dyes; Playing Dirty, our latest outdoor exhibition; and our newly refreshed permanent galleries featuring new objects and hidden or obscured science histories.
