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 25 years. During this time, we have supported a number of different exhibitions and installations promoting health and wellbeing. This includes 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.
We are extremely proud to be the principal sponsor of the world’s largest medicine galleries, Medicine: The Wellcome Galleries, bringing science to life for more than 1 million people every year.
