Family Fun at Explorium

Ireland’s New Family Day Out! Science Challenge your mind and body with over 300 interactive science and sport experiences - there's something for every age and ability.

At Explorium we'll introduce you to STEM learning, by inviting you to step into our life-altering world of science and sport. Learning in a fun and interactive way has been shown to enhance memory retention, improve understanding and encourage further investigation.


Test your speed and agility in our sports science areas, create a blockbuster in Movieworld, create a song with a lazer harp and even defy gravity in our amazing Gravity Rooms.


Are you ready for an incredible Sport Simulation or Virtual Reality experience? Channel your inner Messi with a penalty shootout against our robot goalkeeper, enjoy the thrill of Ireland’s first F1 car simulators, go high in Conquer Your Fears climb zone or down low in the world’s longest indoor caving challenge… and loads more! Check out the top Sport Experiences here. Ages 8+.


A dedicated interactive fun zone, designed especially for little ones! With 50+ amazing science and sport activities, including a multi-sensory room, Maker's Lab and our amazing Aquarium. Plus, the Explorium Junior Team are on hand to explain the science (and to play!). Junior outdoor playground is weather permitting.

Plan your visit

We recommend you allow at least three hours for the Science experience, and Junior is a two hour session.
The Sport section is organised on a modular system, with timings from ten minutes to an hour, so simply choose the Sport activities you want.

Explorium is brilliant, which means it gets busy, so please book in advance to avoid disappointment. During peak times, it’s best to arrive 15-30 minutes before your booked slot.
