Science Gallery


The Science Gallery on Pearse Street in Dublin City is now fast becomeing one of the top ten free cultural attractions in Ireland. Unlike most galleries, they don’t have a permanent collection. This means that there is always something new to see, but it also means that between exhibitions (which can be a gap of up to three weeks), only their shop and café remain open. Keep an eye on the Familyfun Event Calendar for up and coming exhibitions. So if you are planning to visit an exhibition, to avoid disappointment, make sure to check for exhibition dates before travelling to Science Gallery.
