Had lots of info but didn't really leave much of an impression on me. The best part to be fair was walking over the arch of Christchurch and climbing up many (!) stairs to get the awesome view of the city!!

This was a great place to visit! I liked the presentation of Viking life and the transition to modern Dublin. The artifacts were interesting. The medieval "town" area was well done and interesting. The whole family enjoyed it.

Exhibitions are great, lots of items are allowed to be tried by hands, tower is accessible and view from it is magnificent. Access to church makes this spot is more attractive.

there's more in York, we was there in October 2016 but due to floods a lot of it was closed. once it al re-opens it'd be a better choice than the Dublin one.
