The exhibit does a great job of providing interactive displays on the 1916 Easter Uprising and the role of the GPO. Changed my understanding of the Irish rebellion.

Good experience. I recommend the audio-guide otherwise the visit would be quite short. The movie about 1916 Easter rising is really well done and interesting. The ticket is a little bit expensive( 14 euros).
