You could spend hours in here there's so much to look at. Brilliantly put together and well worth the money. If you get a chance to go there, Do! It's a great experience.

Ensure this museum experience is on your agenda if/when visiting Dublin. It was the most fascinating Irish museum we have ever been to. The technology employed at EPIC is incredible. Well worth the visit.
