National History Museum Hotels Dublin

National History Museum in Dublin

This museum is crammed with antique glass cabinets containing stuffed animals from around the world. The Irish room on the ground floor holds exhibits on Irish wildlife. Inside the front door are three huge skeletons of the extinct giant deer, better known as the "Irish elk". Also on this floor are shelves stacked with jars of bizarre creatures such as octopuses, leeches and worms preserved in embalming fluid. The upper gallery houses the noted Blaschka Collection of glass models of marine life, and a display of Buffalo and Deer trophies. Suspended from the ceiling are the skeletons of a fin whale, found at Bantry Bay in 1862, and a Humpback whale, which was found stranded at Inishcrone in County Sligo in 1893.
