The Hunt Museum’s latest interactive exhibition "Nights Candles are Burnt Out: Climate, Culture, Change & Community”.

Through art, storytelling and interactive games, the children learned about the science and technology that can move us to a sustainable future.

"Night's Candles are Burnt Out" invites visitors to explore how Ireland can embrace its pioneering history and lead the way in addressing the Climate Challenge, by harnessing the immense renewable energy potential of the Shannon Estuary, particularly through wind and water. Exhibition runs until 29 February 2024. Picture: Alan Place
