Science Gallery is an amazing place to discover and/or improve knowledge about the subject of the ongoing show/demonstration.

Well worth spending half an hour there
Feb 2020
A fairly small gallery but informative nonetheless.
When we visited its focus was on the impact of plastic on the world.
Very informative and well worth spending half an hour there.

Excellent, very interesting and informative and the zero waste exhibition was great. Science Gallery is well worth a visit for any exhibition.

Good thing it's free
Nov 2019
Having been to 3-4 different exhibitions, each one seemed haphazard and thrown together, with many installments being only vaguely related to the exhibition's theme, and entirely unrelated to everything around it. More infuriating still is the number of 'artsy' installments - many lack sufficient scientific substance and leave you feeling empty.

Only recommended if you know this is an art gallery masquerading as a science gallery. The bookshop is great though.

Thanks for your feedback and we are genuinely disappointed to read that you feel the exhibitions 'leave you feeling empty'. The aim of the gallery is to engage 15-25 year olds in conversations that ignite's curiosity in STEAM - science, technology, engineering, arts and math. We work with scientists, artists, researchers and technologists nationally and internationally to bring exhibits that reflect global conversations be that on plastic, intimacy, fake news or the future of artificial intelligence. A key part of the offering is our team of mediators who work with visitors to pull out the conversation pieces. We tend to get good feedback on the experience but appreciate it is not for everyone. Thanks for the feedback on the bookshop. They'll be delighted with it as they work hard to bring interesting books and paraphernalia to Science Gallery visitors. Over next exhibition INVISIBLE opens in March 2020 - we hope you will give us another chance.

Worth a visit!

I would highly recommend visiting the Science Museum/Gallery when you're in Dublin. It's a modern science gallery on campus at Trinity College. The exhibit we viewed was called "Plastic" and interestingly, it focussed on both the good and bad aspects of using plastics. It's interactive and there are guides at the displays to explain/demonstrate more about the exhibit. We enjoyed this because they answered our questions and gave us more to think about. The bonus is it's free! They also have a Cafe with wonderful coffee and sweets, a large eating area, and you'll also find a great gift shop with lots of cool science books and toys.

Thanks for the amazing 5 star rating and the great feedback. A key aim of Science Gallery is to ignite curiosity and we love that you left with your questions answered but also, with lots to think about. Thanks for the feedback on the cafe and Science Gallery shop. We hope to see you again.

Interesting and interactive

Nice to see some hands on science. The exhibits do require a lot of interaction and participation so if quietly browsing and reading is more your thing it may not be for you. It's free though so drop in for a look anyway!

Thanks for the feedback. Hopefully you get a chance to drop into our current exhibition PLASTIC which runs until the 9th February.

Artistic interpretation of scientific ideas, not science
Aug 2019 • Couples
If you are looking for an actual science exhibit, give this gallery a miss. Pseudoscience ran rampant as art was derived from scientific ideas. Even being free, it is not something we’d go out of the way to see.

Thanks for the feedback and we are disappointed to read that you didn't enjoy the summer exhibition PERFECTION. Our current exhibition PLASTIC runs until the 9th February with exhibits by Irish and International contributors looking at our complex relationship with plastic under the theme - Can't live with it, can't live without it. We hope you give us another chance.

Great find in Dublin- Trinity College
Jun 2019 • Family
This museum was one of the great finds of our trip to Dublin. After seeing Book of Kells, we happened upon this free exhibit on perfectionism. We had an amazing time as the exhibits were interactive and thought provoking. The staff was very engaging and provided valuable information to each member of family.

Some exhibits explore topic like human limits of running100m dash, drawing perfect circle, and the beauty of human imperfections.

Probably our favorite exhibit was the biometric mirror. It is a computer generated algorithm that analyzes your face to identify patterns and makes predictions about your age, gender and personal characteristics.

We probably spent 3 hours in this exhibit.

Wow, amazing to read you spent 3 hours with PERFECTION! Thank you for giving it that amount of time (the average visit is 45 minutes) and we hope you make it back to us again sometime. Our current exhibition is PLASTIC and it runs until the 9th of February 2020. It explores our complex relationship with this ubiquitous material under the heading - Can't live with it, can't live without it. The exhibition after that is called INVISIBLE and runs from March. Keep an eye on our website for free events as well.

OK to see if passing next to it

OK to see if passing next to it, if not, don't bother as you won't see anything that impressive. Spent maybe 20 minutes there looking at exhibits.
