The Science Museum was founded in 1857 as part of the South Kensington Museum, and gained independence in 1909. Today the Museum is world renowned for its historic collections, awe-inspiring galleries and inspirational exhibitions.
As a science-led company, GSK has been a corporate member of the Science Museum for over 20 years. During this time we have supported a number of different exhibitions and installations promoting health and wellbeing. This could be seen most recently in the ‘Cravings’ exhibition, which explored the science behind hunger, appetite, and cravings - ending in early January 2016. GSK also funded a permanent gallery at the Science Museum called the ‘Who Am I?’ Gallery, which explores the characteristics that make each of us unique.
