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!

  • Explore and handle our collection of Irish fossils
  • Find out how to recognise common Irish fossils yourself
  • Help to solve our fossil crime scene and learn how to spot clues in rocks
  • Investigate fossil chemistry using ultraviolet light and X-rays
  • Bring your fossil questions to our team of fossil experts

Where can I find the exhibit?

We hope to be able to visit STEM (and non-STEM) events and festivals in 2022 and 2023 depending on government restrictions.
