Had a fun morning in the centre. We were the first people there so they opened the cinema section for us and started the movie immediately, which was great! The movie-documentary-information show thing was also the highlight of the trip for me. It was well done and entertaining as well as informative.
The walk-around-and-look-at-stuff bit was also good, though some of the bits are clearly aimed at children and were a little slow-paced for me. Also several of the exhibit screens were broken, which was a shame. This is the main reason I docked them a point.
We got some advice from a very helpful and super informative lady, her names escapes me because I’m horrible with names, but she sounded Canadian and said she lived in Scotland for a bit. She drew us out a nice map of how to drive to the fort-proper (it was raining way too hard to walk) and told us some of the more recent history of the area, which was cool.
The fort-proper would be a great place to visit on days where it isn’t blowing a gale and pissing it down, bluntly. I’d like to go back in the summer at some point! It was still a very interesting place to go visit, it was just a short and muddy visit this time. A fun ~2-3 hours to be had at Navan, more if you go on a nice day and plan a picnic.
