The museum has an impressive collection of documents, photos, audio and memorabilia, including first-hand accounts, of the Easter Rising 1916. It could be better organized, and I found it difficult to figure out what order I was meant to use moving from display to display. Still, it was quite interesting.
Excellent experience, would highly recommend. The audio visual was also very well done at explaining the events of the 1916 Rising. Very good value for money also - spent around an hour in here in total
The staff was really sweet, that's always a plus on my list! As for the museum, I really liked the video showing the Easter Rising of 1916 that took place in Dublin. Apart from that, I found the exhibition a bit poor for the price. It was nice overall but not a must for your bucket list. If you had to choose between this museum and the museum of Ireland Emigration I would recommend the latter 100%. It's one of the best museum I've been too. Enjoy your stay in Dublin peps, Cheers,
Definitely not the largest museum, but however well worth if you are visiting Dublin. Especially, if you are like myself and aware of some of Irish history, but not really educated on it. Learned a great deal about a specific part of this country's history. Exhibits are very informative and well done. On a separate note, the gift shop is also convienent for buying a post card if you need to send one to friends/family back home (with stamps readily available at the Post Office counters across the entry way).
Loved learning the history and plight of the Irish people fighting for their freedom. Great exhibit! Must see when visiting Dublin especially if you love history!
