Overview

In 2008, a car park in a forgotten corner of Dublin was transformed into a living experiment that would bridge art and science, unleashing their combined creative potential. A groundbreaking initiative pioneered by Trinity College Dublin, Science Gallery is a new kind of space where art and science collide – a porous membrane between the university and the city. Since opening in 2008, over 1 million visitors to Science Gallery have experienced 26 unique exhibitions – ranging from living art experiments to materials science and from the future of the human race to the future of play.

We found the Sound Check exhibition a bit below expectations. Many of the exhibits didn't work and overall the exhibit was quite small.

I had a lovely lunch here. Hadn't been here for a few years. Very pleasant salad and coffee. The environment is very pleasant, service prompt, friendly and courteous. The food is great. Really enjoyed the visit.

Very enjoyable and quirky exhibition playing with sound using some very strange machines on at present. And it's free!

Had hoped to visit the Science Gallery as part of our Trinity College but when we arrived, nothing to experience and felt a waste, was told that they were preparing for the next exhibition for next week.

Visited the gallery during the week for a quick visit! Best part of the gallery is the cafe which sells really excellent coffee!

Hi there Cian, Thanks for getting in touch. At Science Gallery Dublin our target age group is 15-25, so we're not really suitable for very young children. We'd love a visit in a few years though!
