Natural History Museum, Dublin Overview

This branch of the National Museum of Ireland displays an extensive collection of the natural zoological history of Ireland. It is also often called the "Dead Zoo".

Opened in 1857, the Natural History Museum showcases an amazing zoological collection, from small animals to large whales. The skeletons and exhibits of the animals are centuries old, with those native to Ireland being displayed on the ground floor of the museum. A striking skeleton is that of the basking shark, hanging from the ceiling. The other floors and galleries are dedicated to specific types of species, such as mammals, birds and marine specimens from all over the world.
