The natural history museum of Ireland has changed very little over the last century and this was very evident to me when I visited it recently. It was exactly as I remembered it from my last visit more than twenty years ago as part of a school tour. It is a fantastic old building, part of the government buildings complex at Lenister house . According to the information leaflet there are two million scientific specimens in the museum and judging by how packed in everything is I would believe that everyone of them is on display.
I spent a wonderful hour wandering through hallways and corridors of giant stuffed animals, I searched for the famous Celtic tiger but from my visit to this great spot I am certain that the celtic tiger never featured at the natural history museum. It is a under appreciated gem in the heart of the city well worth a visit.
