Imaginosity is an innovative children's museum aimed at stimulating children's imaginations and curiosity. The two-storey climbing structure is a favourite, while the art studio, theatres and galleries provide endless hours of fun. Parents will be thrilled to sneak some education in without them even realising it! The museum is designed for kids under nine, but the idea is to engage in creative play as a family, with parents and older siblings.

Imaginosity is great for a rainy day in Dublin, or just a chance for the kids to take a break from traditional sightseeing and blow off some creative steam. The museum holds numerous events and competitions - things like Superhero Training Camps and storytelling competitions.

Book ahead to avoid disappointment, particularly on holidays and weekends, as they only accept a certain number of children per session. If you are booking for a group of kids, note that for every five children there must be an adult guardian.
