Science City 1550–1800: The Linbury Gallery

Due to open in Autumn 2019, Science City will explore how science and London shaped each other between 1550 and 1800.

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

Covering over 650 square metres, the gallery design by Gitta Gschwendtner will create an abstract cityscape that will immerse the visitor in a contemporary interpretation of historic London.
