The Winton Galery at the London Science Museum is a permanent math exhibition in London, UK. Opening on December 8, 2016, occupies a 900 m^2 gallery of the museum, designed by Zaha Hadid Architects.

The exhibition tries to escape from the traditional division in areas of mathematics (geometry, arithmetic, calculus...) and instead it focuses on human stories where mathematics has played a significant role. The gallery is divided into six areas: War and peace, Trade and ravel, Form and beauty, Maps and models, Life and death, and Money. Each area tells a story around an iconic historical artifact.
