Natural History Museum Dublin


The Natural History, part of the National Museum of Ireland, - has galleries of animals from Ireland and overseas, also geological exhibits from a total collection of about 2 million scientific specimens. The Natural History building was built in 1856 to house the Royal Dublin Society’s growing collections, which had expanded continually since the late 18th Century.

The building is a ‘cabinet-style’ museum designed to showcase a wide-ranging and comprehensive zoological collection, and has changed little in over a century. Often described as a ‘museum of a museum’, its 10,000 exhibits provide a glimpse of the natural world that has delighted generations of visitors since the doors opened in 1857.
