Science has been understood as the evidence of the rationality of Western culture and the Science Museum as the space where that image of rationality is publicly exposed. From the conception of the museum as a public institution until today, the cultural imaginaries of Science have evolved and, consequently, spaces for their representation have also changed. Therefore, the following analysis takes the exhibition space as a unit of study since when both, content and audience, converge on it, it is the place in which the imaginary is composed on what is exposed, either by what is proposed from its design or by the interpretation obtained when interacting in it. Three exhibition spaces will be projected at the Science museum and, although they have emerged and supposedly have being replaced by different circumstances and historical perceptions of the museum, today they are superposed and coexist in a large part of these institutions: the treasure cave, the department store and the creative studio. Understanding these typologies will allow distinguishing the role played by this institution in the divulgation and dissemination of science to society, in addition to the different cultural perceptions that have been inoculated from Science.
