We stumbled upon this museum just walking around Dublin and it was such a surprisingly delight! Some of the interactive elements are a little kitchy and aimed towards kids, but it was definitely informative.

While I did enjoy the historical portion of the tour involving the excavation of what is now the civic center, I felt the intended audience was more for school age children.

While this offers a great overview of Viking history in Dublin, it wasn't really worth the trip for us. It's aimed more at kids, which is great, but my Viking and Celtic history loving husband left quite disappointed.

We like to think we are aimed at all ages and display our exhibitions in a fun, educational and interactive way, perhaps this is why you feel it was aimed at children. Many thanks for your review, we appreciate all feedback. Kind Regards Mary-Therese Byrne

If you like history (like me) then you should visit this museum. It's located at the heart of the city, hence very easy to visit. Maybe a bit pricey but I think it is worth it. You get a very detailed history of the city...More

The ticket is too expensive. The museum is children oriented and old. I kinda regret buying the ticket, was boring. The staff is super nice by the way.More

This is very surprising. Our most expensive price is €9.50 for an Adult ticket, which gives entrance into 4 exhibitions. This is one of the most cost effective visits in the whole of Dublin and we score 100% value for money in recent research that...More

there's more in York, we was there in October 2016 but due to floods a lot of it was closed. once it al re-opens it'd be a better choice than the Dublin one.

We only spent about an hour. - rather last century, I thought. You can get a double ticket that gets you into the adjacent church. I would recommend the new exhibition at the Post Office although it makes one embarrassed to... More
