The Art and Science of Modern Science Museums

by Michael Keller

When most think of the art in museums, their minds naturally wander to places like the Louvre in Paris, the Tate in London or New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art.

But a new generation of science museums around the world awe visitors with the architectural artistry of their walls as much as the exhibitions inside.

The selection we show here often take inspiration from nature in ways that were not possible without modern building materials—Singapore’s ArtScience Museum employs glass fiber reinforced polymer to achieve a shape reminiscent of a lotus flower; Valencia, Spain’s Museum of Sciences mimics a giant whale’s skeleton; and Dalian, China’s Shell Museum channels its namesake contents inside using lightweight and strong metal facade panels.
