  • This place has a lot to offer considering it is free entry. It is very interesting and covers a lot of hot topics - which are all up to date (2018). It involves a lot of new sciences and philosophies....  more »
  • Visited here today with 3 kids aged 11,10 and 8. They were only mildly interested in the place. It’s ok but not great. Could be so much better.  more »

  • Interesting place to spend some afternoon time. I was with my girlfriend and we spent about 45 minutes inside. We didn't see all of the pieces but there was plenty more to see. I don't want to spoil it but there are so fascinating ones to see. I recommend for 18+ at least, that's just the age I can see that would be interested in this gallery. Free admission is a cool plus! You're allowed to take pictures with two stipulations, no selling your photos and no flash.
  • Really interesting place to visit. There’s a different theme every month, and it never fails to be a great and informative time. It’s comprised of interactive science exhibits, made by students of trinity college. Plus it’s free, so you have nothing to lose if you visit
  • One of my favorite experiences in Dublin. A really thoughtful exhibition on "fake" when I visited, which really made you think about a lot of things. And the exhibition space itself is very beautiful and almost perfect for this kind of temporary exhibitions and displays. My only complaint would be that I would have liked it to be bigger :-)
  • Science Gallery Dublin is a modern gallery that that shows science related exhibits. The theme changes several times a year, so it is always worth coming back for something new. Two things I really love about this place: one, it's free! and two, the gallery is open until 8pm weekdays. The place is quite small though. The volunteer staff are friendly and helpful, and necessary to answer the inevitable questions. One grumble is that sometimes the science exhibits break or don't work, and do not get fixed for a long time, or not at all. The gallery has a cafe, though the range of food is a bit limited. There is also a small shop for science related things. Science Gallery regularly holds events such as talks, details on the website. Most are free, some are paid events. I have attended quite a few of these and would recommend them to anyone with an interest in science or an open mind in general. Overall, a great place to visit.
  • #TakeBackTrinity As a tourist, you will be welcomed here with open arms and you will be given any resources you need to enjoy your visit. As a student, your struggles will be completely ignored and you will be forced to pay €450 in supplemental fees if you fail one exam, or ten exams. It doesn't matter to the Board. They just want our money. They have no empathy for financial situation, mental health, disability, bereavement, anything. We will not stand for this.
