Ada Lovelace Exhibition
13 October 2015 @ 10:00 am - 31 March 2016 @ 6:00 pmFree
Discover the remarkable story of Ada Lovelace, a Victorian pioneer of the computer age, in our free exhibition celebrating the bicentenary of her birth.
Called the ‘Enchantress of Numbers’ by Charles Babbage, Lovelace was the daughter of infamous poet Lord Byron and the admired intellect Annabella Milbanke. She studied science and maths at a time when women rarely had access to such subjects and collaborated with Babbage on his calculating machines. Lovelace is celebrated for imagining the machine’s potential, foreshadowing modern computing a century later.
Opening on Ada Lovelace Day, the exhibition brings together for the first time Lovelace’s portraits, letters and notes, alongside the incredible calculating machines she worked with.
