Natural History Museum, Dublin Reviews - Write a Review

  • Really interesting. Hard to believe the amount of species just in Ireland. Good to spend an hour or two going around. Definitely recommend.

  • It is a really really good museum with loads of animals from Ireland as well as worldwide. It's especially good for family Sundays. Kids would love this wonderful place. The design is nice as well, which looks like a laboratory in a college. You will find that the nature is far more larger that what we think.

  • Great museum with some fantastic displays. Lots of Irish people have never been here which is a shame. I'd recommend you make it your aim to see the Bog Bodies amazing forensics giving an insight into our historical relatives.

  • This is a perfect place to view some history when your just exploring plus it’s free entry.

  • Good to see the stuffed animals, however, kids crawling and running everywhere utterly spoilt the occasion. It was a bit like a children's playground - yuck!
