Learn about the impact of famous mathematicians’ ideas through more than 100 objects from the Science Museum’s collection. The new gallery unravels the mathematics at the heart of everyday life: every artefact has an incredible story to tell about the way we’ve dealt with trade, war, travel and money.

 

Explore the spectacular gallery designed by Zaha Hadid Architects, inspired by the 1929 Handley Page aircraft, and see how mathematical principles translate into design and architecture.

 

Highlights of the display include the Enigma machine, designed to protect military communication from code breaking during the Second World War, and an ancient Islamic astrolabe used to map the night sky in the 17th century.
