The institution doesn't have any permanent exhibits, but rather a series of four to six temporary exhibits each year. Past themes have included blood, weather, fat, and the instructive role of failure.

  • Worth a visit. Did all the Museums in the area, but found this the one of most interest amazingly enough. Exhibits interesting, especially the picture through the magnifying glass. Ideal for all ages 
  • Atmosphere quaint and food at good price. Just passing through the exhibition area, you enter the restaurant. Highly recommended the Meal Deal for students who have low-budget and little time to eat: water, a soup to choose from, a sandwich of ham, cheese, lettuce and tomato tempered and an Apple for €7. The service is fast, they have a few bells to alert waiters with three different buttons: call, coffee, bill.

  • We have been on the SEEING exhibition and it was a great for a quickie. No crowd, kids could explore without us holding their hand or holding them back. 
  • I enjoy this place every time I visit. The expositions are good, the cafeteria is nice and there is a small toy shop inside focused on tricky and scientific toys.
  • Great place for to check out intersectional art and science exhibits. Was in town to see the Future Farm exhibit, but didn't have the courage to try the VR piece as I'd seen some sneezy kids using it moments before. Some wipes for things like that would be appreciated.
  • Great exhibitions, and they are free! The cafe is a great spot for lunch or a coffee, and the shop is fun (check out the associated Make Shop at the Lincoln Place side of Trinity, too).
  • Excellent free exhibitions. I've been to several of their exhibitions which are always very interesting and interactive. The staff are knowledgeable, enthusiastic and very willing to help and engage in conversation.
  • A great place to visit for some additional education. Exhibits change every couple of months. Also, Cloud picker coffee shop inside the gallery does an excellent coffee.
