The Zoological Museum is situated on the first floor of the Zoology Building. Part of the original collection dates back from the Dublin University Museum founded in 1777. The wide diversity of animal life represented in the collection is a rarity in itself and unsurpassed in Irish (and most British) universities. Today, the museum remains a vital, non-renewable teaching research facility for students, staff and visitors. It contains many examples of extinct and endangered species including Ireland’s Last Great Auk (extinct 1844), Tasmanian Wolf, Passenger Pigeon,, Kakapo, Mammoth and Giant Irish Deer remains. The insect collections contain over 12,000 specimens many of which are of considerable national and international significance.The collection is further enhanced by over fifty glass models of marine-life, hand-made by the world renowned Blaschka family (c. 1860). The museum is open to the public by appointment – please contact the Curator.
