Worth the visit. The signage for exhibits is non existent but they give you a small guide. Study it before you go down into the exhibits. Audio is good, helps frame the environment leading up to the Easter Uprising.

If you're interested in Ireland's history, this is a must see. Lot's of artifacts to see plus a movie to fill in the timeline. Had to drag my son out of there.
