The Natural History Museum was built by the Royal Dublin Society and opened its doors in 1857. Over 150 years later it has changed little and is known as the ‘Dead Zoo’ a true museum of a museum. Familiar favorites include skeletons of 11,000 year old giant deer, Spoticus the giraffe and whale skeletons suspended from the roof. Exhibits cover the animals of Ireland at ground floor level and mammals of the world on the first floor. We apologise that the upper levels are not accessible at present. This requires funding to address problems of emergency exits. Only the ground floor is wheelchair accessible.
