About the exhibit

The palaeontologists behind Ireland’s Fossil Heritage deliver an interactive fossil exhibit at a diverse range of festivals and events all over the country. The Fossil Crime Scene exhibit includes a variety of fun hands-on activities and educational games that will offer you the opportunity to handle and learn all about real Irish fossils! But we don't just have fossils, our STEM exhibit also features a real X-ray gun and has activities linked to chemistry, physics, and even medicine!

Come and visit us and learn all about Irish fossils!
