I have to say that I was underwhelmed by this museum. The exhibits were mostly audio visual displays which I found plodding and superficial and didn’t present a coherent narrative. There were few actual emigration artefacts to connect with. An audio guide was available but...More

First: it’s not a museum. It’s a tourist trap. An exhibition at best. Second: it glosses over the reasons for Irish emigration. It virtually ignores English colonization and exploitation. Third: If done right, they could tell a great story. This is like a corporate presentation,...More

An immersive and fascinating experience. Gave the participant a history lesson without it feeling that the viewer has been ‘preached’ at. We spent 5 hours there on a very wet day.More

Completely worth the price of admission. If your ancestors emigrated from Ireland to America, the museum goes a long way to explaining the reasons for, and impact of the mass exodus.More
