The Science Center contains a number of exhibits on astronomy, botany and early engineering.

 

If you are fascinated by the Birr Castle telescope than you likely will find the Science Center of interest too. Besides being a tribute to the scientific achievements of the Parsons family the Science center provides a window in to the amazing inventiveness of the mid and late 19th century.

Sorry no photographs but you can find some photos on the official website; click on the outside link, the Science Center
