Kildare Street Museums And Houses Of Parliament Overview
Hosting a collection of objects that narrate human history and natural history, the National Museum of Ireland is one of the prominent places to visit in Dublin. It was formed as Dublin Museum of Science and Art in 1977 by an act of parliament and later changed to National Museum of Ireland in 1921. The museum is a storehouse of natural history with many collections that are acquired by many notable Irish cultural institutions.

The museum has a total of four branches, with three branches in Dublin and one in County Mayo. In the Kildare Street branch, you can see many archaeological exhibits and artefacts dating to prehistoric times in Ireland. For the history lovers, there is the Decorative Arts and History Branch in Collins Barracks which has a fine representation of the country’s decorative arts and their political, social and economic history. In the Natural History Museum, you can see various specimens collected by Irish scientists during the 19th century. Apart from offering a delightful lesson in history, the museum hosts many educational activities which you can enjoy with friends and family along with seasonal crafts, self guided activity booklets and interactive exhibits.
