The 1001 Inventions Exhibition...

What is the secret behind the way we write numbers?
When did scientists first discover how we see?
Who drew the oldest surviving map showing America?
What is the hidden meaning of the Elephant Clock?

The 1001 Inventions exhibition completed its record-breaking residency at London’s Science Museum with 400,000 visitors in June 2010 and a block buster residency at the iconic and historic Sultan Ahmed Square in Istanbul with 390,000 visitors. The exhibition is now open at the New York Hall of Science till April 2011.

1001 Inventions: Discover the Muslim Heritage in Our World, traces the forgotten story of a thousand years of science from the Muslim world, from the 7th century onwards. The free exhibition looks at the social, scientific and technological achievements that are credited to the Muslim world, whilst celebrating the shared scientific heritage of other cultures. The exhibition is a British based project, produced in association with the Jameel Foundation.

Featuring a diverse range of exhibits, interactive displays and dramatisation, the exhibition shows how many modern inventions, spanning fields such as engineering, medicine and design, can trace their roots back to Muslim civilisation.
