Fishy Fun

Natural History Museum, Saturday 20th July 2019

Fishy Fun for all the family at the National Museum of Ireland – Natural History.

The fisheries resource will come to life at the Natural History Museum this summer as a free event called Fishy Fun will bring a range of interactive activities suitable for the whole family.

Visitors to the museum will learn more about the fantastic collection of fish on display and how Ireland's most iconic fish species, salmon, is facing its biggest challenge yet. Fisheries staff will be on hand to help young fisheries enthusiasts examine the creepy crawlies that live in Ireland's rivers and lakes via microscopes, while novice anglers can try their hand at fishing through a virtual fishing simulator! In addition to the collection within the museum, aquariums will also showcase some of the freshwater fish which live in waters across Ireland.

Inland Fisheries Ireland and the National Museum of Ireland – Natural History are partnering on this one-day event as part of International Year of the Salmon (IYS), which aims to engage the public around the challenges facing salmon today.

The Ark

So you think that you know the story of Goldilocks? Think again! This summer, enter the world of SCRAPEFOOT, a walk-through visual art experience for audiences of just four people at a time. Goldilocks wasn't always blonde! In fact, over time she has morphed from a fox called SCRAPEFOOT into an old hag, and finally into the Goldilocks we know today. What remains the same in each version of the story, is that they each entered a house in the woods (when nobody was home), to feast, sleep and shelter. Now it's your turn to explore this enchanting house but beware of the three figures who might
