Down to Earth - Exploring Ireland's Geology

  • Address

    National Museum of Ireland - Decorative Arts & History, Collins Barracks, Benburb St, Stoneybatter, Dublin City

  • Web

This exhibition was developed by the National Museum of Ireland in partnership with with Geological Survey Ireland to celebrate the latter’s 175th anniversary. Explore how geology is relevant to everyday life, demonstrate the central role both rock and minerals play in how we interact with the world and inform visitors about the effects of climate change.

The museum is the holder of a vast geological collection yet little of it has been seen by Museum audiences in over fifty years. This partnership with Geological Survey Ireland is bringing these precious samples back into public display and includes real mineral specimens collected in nineteenth-century Ireland and observed through the lens of modern science.
