Enter a world of scientific wonders and curious technology with the Festival of Curiosity!

Hoping to continue with the success of last year’s sold out festival, this year’s events will be held over a number of venues across Dublin City Centre, including the RDS, the Science Gallery and Chester Beatty Library from today until Sunday.

The festival will feature many free and fascinating family events. Some to look out for are Curious Trails Science in the City Treasure Hunt, an hour-long exploration which you can take part in between 10.30am and 4.30pm on Saturday and Sunday; Lego Space City, where you can help to make a space city out of City Hall on Saturday and Sunday from 11.30am to 4.30pm; and Strange Weather, an exhibition about how we as humans react to the unpredictable environment that our weather creates, which will be taking place in the Science Gallery opening at 12pm every day until until Sunday.

Some events require booking and some you can pre-register for. There is massive demand, and booking is advised even for many of the free events, so be sure to check the website to see the full list of events and make sure you don’t miss out!
