Written answers (Question to Culture)

No decision has been taken on the provision of any funding to the National Children’s Science Museum upon its completion. The amount of funding provided to date by my Department in relation to the project is as follows:

2006 – 2009 €637,500

Any philanthropic donations raised by the National Children’s Science Museum is a matter for that entity.
