What a great Museum! I recommend the Audio Guide to get the full experience. I couldn't wait to stamp my passport as we passed through each room.

This museum tells a great story about emigration, including why the Irish emigrated and what Irish emigrants have achieved overseas.

Visited the EPIC Museum right when they opened back at the beginning of June which was great. It was a weekday and right at 10am we almost had the entire place to ourselves. For someone who had ancestors come to Canada from Ireland it was really cool to see how it happened. This would be a great place to bring teens as its interactive and entertaining. We only had an hour there but easily needed 2+ - DON'T MISS THIS ATTRACTION

On a Trafalgar bus tour and our last night in town we were taken here. It basically tells the story of Ireland of its people and hardships. Very moving.
