If you have a precocious child who is in constant need of input as I do, then you will know the trials and tribulations of trying to occupy them daily. Imaginosity is a surefire way to quell some of that energy and direct it into something both fun and educational.
Housed in a quirky purpose built building in the middle of the Beacon South Quarter – which is half way along the Luas green line – Imaginosity (or Dublin’s child museum) is a feast for the senses. Marketed as child-centred creative, educational & interactive space for the under 9s, it is a joy for both adult and child. Each floor houses many different avenues to explore, covering all the milestones a developing child will experience. And on a daily basis they run workshops and activities in art, crafts, drama, dance, science, engineering and storytelling!
The exhibits provide a wide range of tasks designed to fire the thought processes of both child and adult, making the whole experience thoroughly enjoyable for the whole family. Running from Level 1 up to the roof on Level 3 is a climber that every child will make a beeline for at some stage, allowing Mummy and Daddy to grab a quick coffee in the very comfortable cafe by its side. Don’t worry they won’t go far – there is too much to enjoy.
The only problem you will have……is getting them to leave!!!
