miSci Names Jane Golub Gallery in Recognition of Her Philanthropy to the Museum and Our Community

The Museum of Innovation and Science (miSci) announces today that a 5,000-square-foot gallery space located in the Museum’s main exhibit hall has been renamed in honor of iconic business leader, philanthropist, and longtime Museum Trustee Jane Golub who passed away in 2019.

The Jane Golub Gallery will open to the public on February 5, 2022, with the inaugural exhibition Design Zone, a new major permanent interactive installation that highlights the importance of science and math.

“Jane Golub was the Museum’s greatest supporter and friend, said miSci President Gina C. Gould. “Her passion for assuring that children have access to immersive learning experiences has greatly enriched the educational landscape of our region. Her legacy continues to inspire us, and it is our honor to dedicate this permanent gallery space in her name.”

The Museum will host a ribbon cutting ceremony on Thursday, February 3. Elected officials, supporters, Museum board members, and staff will join together to cut the ribbon in celebration of the grand opening on February 5. Among the invited guests are Schenectady Mayor Gary McCarthy, Assemblyman Angelo Santabarbara, Congressman Paul Tonko, Metroplex Development Authority Chair Ray Gillen, Senator Jim Tedisco, and Downtown Schenectady Improvement Corp. Executive Director Jim Salengo. The ribbon cutting will be MC’d by President and CEO of the Capital Region Chamber Mark Eagan. Speakers will include Jane Golub’s husband Neil Golub and daughter Mona Golub.
