USA Today - Skimp on Money, Not on Culture at Dublin's Free Attractions - "Recommended for Free Things to Do because Science Gallery is one of the more interesting museums that are free in the city, a true tribute to innovation. The Science Gallery might seem like it's very straightforward and educational, but in fact the experience is one of curiosity, innovation and artistic exhibitions, talks and interactive themes. Since opening in 2008, over a million visitors have crossed its doors and when you enter it's easy to see why. There are different exhibitions that last from a period of weeks to months and tackle different thought processes or ideas and never fail to impress and create wonderment for those who enter. This is a great place to take kids to help them engage with science and feel a bit of the magic that it can afford."

Irish Independent: Top 20 rainy day activities in Ireland - "Dublin's Science Gallery opens a different exhibition every few months, on everything from fake news to the end of the world to the future of humans. With a target audience of ages 15-25, it's not for younger kids, but perfect for bored teenagers stuck indoors on a wet day. Imaginative exhibits mix art, design, technology and science in novel and accessible ways - and there's a tasty café onsite too."
Family Fun - "The Science Gallery on Pearse Street in Dublin City is now fast becoming one of the top ten free cultural attractions in Ireland. Unlike most galleries, they don’t have a permanent collection. This means that there is always something new to see, but it also means that between exhibitions (which can be a gap of up to three weeks), only their shop and café remain open."
