Since Imaginosity opened its doors 7 years ago, we have been known for being a memorable, exciting place for group visits with lots of opportunities for outside the classroom learning. Imaginosity welcomes groups visiting from schools, community groups, childcare centres, creches and pre-schools. Imaginosity provides real, meaningful experiences for children to learn through play in an environment that they would most likely not have in school or in their day-to-day lives.
If your group would be interested in visiting Imaginosity or if you would simply like to find out more information, you can contact our Group Bookings Co-Ordinator at Rebecca@imaginosity.ie .
CURRENT GROUP PROGRAMMES
As part of our commitment to primary school S.T.E.A.M education, Imaginosity is proud to be part of the annual national celebrations of Science, Maths and Engineering through Science Week, Maths Week and Engineers Week. As part of these celebrations the museum hosts a diverse and interesting programme of daily events throughout these weeks where school groups can explore, discover and experiment in a way that they would be unable to do in school.
