The National Museum of Natural History of Ireland, located in the centre of Dublin, is a museum reflecting Ireland's natural history. There are many specimens of local Irish animals and plants. They are exquisitely made and well preserved. There are many kinds of them. They are very meaningful to visit.
Visited here on a whim and I’m glad I did. Easily one of the best museums I’ve ever been to. It’s a museum of museums, showcasing what a turn of the century museum looked like by simply never updating its look. As others have said, it’s a shame that you are unable to visit the balconies due to fire safety restrictions, but what they have got on show is simply amazing. Something like this would never be able to be constructed now days with restrictions on animal hunting and transport of specimens (as things rightly should be), so a collection like this is truely one of a kind and will be harder and harder to find the likes of as time goes on. Would love to visit again after they’ve finished the proposed updates to the building to see if it still has the same ambience/to see the rest of the amazing collection. Can’t be missed.
One of my favourites places in Dublin! Looks small, but inside there's a lot of stuffed animals and exhibitions to see, so i suggest that you save at least two hours to visit if you like this kind of subject! And pay attention to the opening hours, they are very punctual to close the museum ;)
The National History Museum of Ireland is located in the centre of Dublin. Its overall structure is small and its shape is typical of London style. It has a large lawn and four floors in front of it. Its exhibits are rich. It mainly shows the history and culture of Ireland.
One of the most interesting places to visit in Dublin. It's free, and full of fascinating exhibits.
Thousands of stuffed animals. Really charming exhibit. It's free.
