Highlights
    What to Expect
    EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum experience is in Dublin’s CHQ building, just a short walk from O’Connell Street or Trinity College.

    Once you get to the building, check in with your voucher (either electronic or paper), which allows you to skip the queues, and get your 'passport' for the upcoming journey. Visit each of the 20 galleries on a self-guided tour; the experience generally takes 1.5 hours, and you can enter any time during opening hours. Spend your time collecting stamps in your play passport—you can get one at each gallery. Staff located throughout the building can also answer questions.

    As you go, learn the reasons why more than 10 million Irish people left the island, as well as the struggles and triumphs that came with leaving. Find out where they went and why, and discover stories about some of the 70 million people around the world who claim Irish ancestry today.

    For an extra admission fee to the Irish Family Centre, find out about your own Irish heritage, ancestors, and unique family story. Here you can also schedule a consultation with a professional genealogist.

    Most of the world's great museums are owned and operated by governmental agencies or nonprofit corporations. Just a few truly great museums are private, profit-making enterprises.
