Explorium, The National Science and Sports Centre, combines the excitement of the playing field with the analytics of the laboratory to produce these unique exhibits. Conquer your fears in Explorium’s climbing section or venture through one of the world’s longest indoor caving structures. The possibilities are endless making it one of the top Family Days Out in Dublin this year!
Test your speed, strength and agility at Explorium’s sport science facilities which have the same equipment used by the best soccer teams in the world. Try making spiky crystals out of the magnetic liquid, create whirlpools or twist electricity through incredible interactive weather exhibits. Explorium’s theatre has live science shows and amazing films. The Lightning Room is home to Ireland’s largest Tesla coil, where half a million volts are shot through the room. Sport, science or a combination of both, Explorium has something for everyone.
A dedicated interactive fun zone, designed especially for little ones! With 50+ amazing science and sport activities, including a multi-sensory room and our amazing interactive aquarium. Plus, the Explorium Junior Team are on hand to explain the science (and to play!). Junior outdoor playground is weather permitting.
Explorium’s mission is to inspire curious minds to discover the wonders of science through sport. Try your hand at film making, reinvent the orchestra with laser musical instruments, explore one of the world’s longest indoor caves and test your courage with a leap of faith. And you won’t want to miss Ireland’s first robot waiters and a robot goalie who’s really hard to beat. Explorium is where fun, interaction and discovery come together.
A sports science centre that stimulates young minds to create the Ireland of tomorrow and ignites them to think, ask and discover.
A truly unique, world-class experience where science and sport fuse. Your number one for Family Days Out in Dublin!
