I enjoyed the place, even though it is a bit basic and really aimed at children. Nice objects on the top floor and good replica of my profession, archaeologist and conservator...even better if someone could remove that huge trowel from the archaeologist hand (he is...More

I took my daughters ages 8 and 12 to Dublinia so that they could learn a little more about the history of Ireland without spending a day in a huge museum. This was a wonderful way to learn without spending half of a day on...More

This was a fun expedition that my school desperately needed, great thing about it is, you're practically free to explore as you like after the entrance fee. Lot's to see and learn

This was an informative little museum, but a little too cutesy with the exhibits, likely for a younger audience.

Very well presented exhibition of Dublin's history. Loads to see and some interactive displays as well. Very informative. Reasonably priced for what you get out of it. Well worth a visit if in Dublin.

I opted for the guided tour, and I'm glad I did. I didn't know anything about Dublin's early history, especially history dating back to the Vikings, and the guide provided a solid base for much of the sightseeing I would go on to do throughout...More

Engagingly and informatively the Viking and medieval times of the capital city are marvellously presented. Housed in the outstanding Synod Hall of Christchurch Cathedral the space provides an atmospheric and evocative background for the often tumultuous events in the life of the city. Figures, dioramas...More

Found this one of the best museums, really informative and interactive makes learning more fun and great for children. You're able to dress up, try on helmets, and really get the feel for the viking period. Would definitely recommend.

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.

We only spent about an hour. - rather last century, I thought. You can get a double ticket that gets you into the adjacent church. I would recommend the new exhibition at the Post Office although it makes one embarrassed to... More
