  • Every few months I take the kids to the museum and though the exhibits generally remain the same, they absolutely love every visit. A great variety on show. The only down side is the lack of elevator, but it's a nice free outing that everyone in the family enjoys!

  • Nice place to see as many animals in their natural size in Ireland. Such a variety, just marvelous, and mostly well preserved. Not into killing of them, but since they are already killed why wouldn't they be used as exponats. A must see if you're visiting Dublin, and is close to other museums and galleries.

  • Our favourite place. Kids love it and learn so much. If I was filthy rich I'd pay to fix the upper floors that are not open to the public

  • Hugely educational for both adults and children alike. This place is a wonderful way to see animals up close. Allow yourself plenty of time to browse

  • I like it very much its so good its so good because its like so ancient things and like old things is very good and beautiful and its so like spectacular and amazing I can live their because it is so cool man oh my god! i am from another country and I love this thing. if you didn't saw it please see it because its so ancient and old try it it is good
