Egg-straordinary Eggs!

Free Admission

What's so egg-straordinary about eggs? What's the largest egg in the collections at the National Museum of Ireland - Natural History? Tune in to the National Museum of Ireland’s social media channels to engage and learn live with Museum educators! Join us for this family event as we share fun facts and “museum at home” activities exploring all things eggy, and get answers for your egg questions via the online comments. At the end of this event you will be able to impress your friends over Easter by knowing what eggs are made of, the biggest bird egg to ever exist, and also learn the answer to that ancient question..."which came first, the chicken or the egg?"

Time: 1pm- 2pm. Join us while we takeover Twitter and Facebook!
Audience: Families
