Yesterday the kids and I visited the Science Gallery at Trinity College.
As I am a follower of their Fcebook and get their newsletters, I knew about the SEEING – what are you looking at? A free exhibition questioning how your eyes, brains and robots see things. It is on until mid-September so decided to take them along.
They loved it – only Soren at 8, really wanted to try the virtual reality glasses, but due to potential damage, you must be 13 and over.
Now that they’ve been to this place, I’m sure we’ll be back for all the exhibitions. The next one looks very cool – Humans Need Not Apply.
They also have a “MAKE SHOP” up the street where at times, they have kids items.
At 6 & 8, they are a bit young to fully get it, but even if they enjoy only one thing and learn one thing from the trips, it will be well worth it.
Before we made it to Trinity, we visited Merrian Square’s Giant’s Playground for a short trip – the cast has only been off for one day, we want to not re-injure it.
And after all this, the highlight of their day was the CityScape Hop/Off bus. For only 10 per adult and FREE for kid (2 per adult, I couldn’t say no). I think we’ll do it again and this time get off at the Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA) and a few other stops. There are still so many things in Dublin I have not yet done yet and while living here, I want to do them.
