Zoological Museum


The Zoological Museum has a long and proud tradition. From humble beginnings around 250 years ago, the collection provides a vital undergraduate teaching resource for Trinity's Department of Zoology. The museum has recently undergone major refurbishment and now represents a unique and popular resource for staff, students and visitors.

The museum operates a very successful outreach programme for the general public from June to August each year. The emphasis is on providing a unique experience suitable for all the family. The success of the programme is attributed to the quality of the exhibits on display, the opportunity to handle historic objects and listen to their individual stories, expertly interpreted by the Zoology staff and graduates.
