Sea Science – The Wild Atlantic Exhibition at Galway City Museum receives consistently positive reviews from visitors on Tripadvisor.
Open since 2017, Sea Science – The Wild Atlantic Exhibition is a partnership between the Museum and the Marine Institute. It is Ireland’s first sea science gallery to have audio and visual displays accessible in both English and as Gaeilge.
Free to visitors, the interactive exhibition spans a variety of topics including:
– the nature of how tides operate,
– multi-beam mapping,
– deep-sea exploration,
– marine life along the seashore.
The Exhibition communicates the basic principles of marine science in a fun and engaging way, using a combination of digital interactives and high-definition video footage.
Reviews on Tripadvisor report that:
“Kids love going here, especially to the top floor to play games and visit the submarine.”
“The best part was definitely the top floor with its marine theme. For anyone with children – this is the floor for them!”
Galway City Museum itself has been recognised by Tripadvisor as a 2020 Travellers’ Choice Award-Winner for Top Tourist Attraction in Ireland. This recognition is based on a full year of consistently positive reviews from travellers, placing the location in the top 10 percent of attractions around the globe.
The Museum is currently preparing the Sea Science – The Wild Atlantic Exhibition for a safe reopening in line with government public health guidelines.
“This exhibition raises awareness about the ocean and its importance to our livelihood, local communities and culture,” said Harriet Dundon, Marine Science Communication Intern at Galway City Museum.
“It is a great achievement for the museum and the Marine Institute to receive this recognition from our visitors. We look forward to safely reopening our exhibition soon.”
