EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum is a state-of-the-art interactive experience located in the beautiful vaults of the 1820 Custom House Quarter building in Dublin's Docklands, the original departure point for so many of Ireland's emigrants. It will inspire and guide you on a journey to discover the stories of Irish emigration around the world, from early times to the modern day. Over the centuries, some 10 million people have left the island of Ireland. At EPIC you can step through 20 themed galleries to find out why people left, see how they influenced the world they found, and experience the connection between their descendants and Ireland today. Immerse yourself in the stories of some of the most remarkable tales of sacrifice, endurance, adventure, and discovery the world has ever known. EPIC brings these amazing stories to life in a unique and spectacular way.

Through a series of different displays the story of the Irish who left Irelamd is told. Children will enjoy getting their passport stamped at the various displays.

This is a well-done multimedia exploration of Irish emigration. I found I was laughing, crying, amazing, uplifting. We were there almost 2 hours, which seemed about right. This was 100% better than the "Dublinia" exhibit that was weird mannequins and static presentations.

The museum took my breath away - interactive state of the art exhibits alongside traditional historical pieces. It was informative emotional and filled my heart with pride for the people who left our shore but brought Ireland with them.

This is a terrific exhibition for both locals and tourists. There is so much information that perhaps it is very difficult to take it all in on one visit. Every thing is so well displayed that it is easy to watch but really is a lot to take in in such a short time.

I spent a lot of time in each section of the exhibit. Well displayed, but really was much longer than I expected to be there. But overall, worth it.
