  • The effort to make scientific culture accessible to all and the work done over the years by science gallery Dublin are certainly made worthy of praise. The temporary exhibition "Perfection - 21.06.19 – 06.10.19" is certainly interesting and the help of student volunteers is essential. Impressive model of the "Airbag Man". At the same time, however, it is hoped that Dublin will soon be able to have a scientific and technological museum with a permanent collection like other major European capitals. DUM SPIRO SPERO.

  • Nice to see some hands on science. The exhibits do require a lot of interaction and participation so if quietly browsing and reading is more your thing it may not be for you. It's free though so drop ...  more »

  • What makes Science Gallery one of my favourite places in Dublin? Is it the thought provoking, thematic exhibitions that explore the cutting edge of science and art? Or perhaps the highest level of quality in presentation and graphic design surrounding each exhibition? Maybe it is the friendly and knowledgeable staff that will guide you through the pieces on display? Or the quirky shop full of ‘can’t get these elsewhere’ toys and trinkets? I think it may just be the coffee, but the above also helps.
  • A great little experience. It isn't too big but very interesting. Expect to spend no longer than one and a half hours here. Be aware that they rebuild the exhibit a couple of times a year. This means there are periods where they are closed and the exhibition changes. Visit their homepage to make sure they are open and find out what they are showing.
