Imaginosity © Maurice Frazer
With a number of exhibits aimed at stimulating children's imaginations and curiosity, Imaginosity is an innovative children's museum that kids will go wild for. The two-storey climbing structure is a favourite, while the art studio, theatres and galleries provide endless hours of entertainment, and at the same time, provide a wonderfully educational experience in a non-threatening way. The museum is designed for kids under nine, and will be wasted on older children; however, adults or older siblings are intended to take part with the younger visitors and the idea is to engage in creative play as a family. 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. Imaginosity advises people to book ahead of time 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.
