History of Ireland

A great experience. A lot to see and to do. Paid a bit extra and went over to the Christ Church Cathedral. Was all in all an amazing experience.

I couldn't get past the fact that the entire thing just felt dirty. I could not wait to wash my hands and couldn't imagine putting any of the costumes on. Better ways to deliver history.

This experience was included on our Dublin pass. For the first ten minutes or so, we were not too impressed as the exhibits did not really engage us. The level is pitched at children or those with no knowledge at all about Vikings. However, we were invited to join a presentation by a 'real' Viking and his vivid and enthusiastic... More

The visit was part of our Dublin Pass, that is excellent value. Dublin has an incredible history from the Vikings through present day. Great for the whole family. Presentations were excellent.

We went here as entry was included on the Dublin Pass. The exhibits were interesting and varied and I think it would be ideal if you have children. I thoroghly enjoyed reading about the history of Dublin and there are lots of opportunities to get hands on and try on outfits.

Interactive museums are more and more popular, it's educative for the younger audience and still fun for the rest. Should be appreciated how history and archeology are presented in this accessible matter.

Went because it was close to hotel. Was not that impressed. Was more for kids, perhaps if I had a kid with me it would have been better.

It's a great museum to lear a bit about the history if Ireland and Dublin, learn how to live like a viking, how to write in runes, the cure for various diseases and play interactive games throughout the tour.

This isn't a museum so much as a presentation of a series of recreations of viking and medieval Dublin. There isn't much in the way of artifacts but there is a lot of information posted on signboards and some interactive displays. It is probably geared a bit towards children, but there is still plenty here to enjoy for adults. If... More
