Spending 2 hours in the EPIC museum is an incredible experience! I really love the fact that everything is very interactive, very engaging, so many nice activities to enjoy. It is very well organized and you will learn a lot in very cool ways about the history of Ireland. The gallery outside the exhibition is also very convenient as you can have coffee, lunch and buy souvenirs. Building itself is also well located and surroundings are great ! I would highly recommend to visit the EPIC museum and also a very good point is that you can return to visit it with the same ticket a second time during the 30 days after your first visit. Big kudos !
I'll be honest, EPIC was scheduled for our last day in Ireland and was pretty much just planned as a filler. I didn't expect much. Coming out, it is my top recommendation on museums to visit in Dublin! You'll start by being given a "passport" to collect stamps around the museum. A simply hook that worked on me. I made sure to hit every room and sometimes just walking into the room was enough to get you to explore. I appreciated the step wise approach EPIC took to walk down Irish history and influence across the globe. I can also say it literally has something for everyone as it was more than just history and politics. You get sports, song and dance, politics, and war all wrapped up within a handful of easy to navigate rooms. Presentation is delivered by all media and variety from room (or portion of room) to room. You read a bit here, watched a bit there, and listened elsewhere. Time seemed to stand still (in the positive respect) in some areas to allow you to adequate pace the museum in about an hour. Enjoy!
Beautiful museum. A must-see for tourists with Irish ancestors! Ireland has a fascinating history of emigration stories. This museum brings honor to these people with easy-to-follow, visually appealing multimedia exhibits. It's a good museum for adults, and teens would appreciate it too. Younger children may not be as interested, but the exhibits look exciting enough to hold their attention for a little while. It takes about 90-120 minutes to walk through.
This was phenomenal and so well done. We had such a good time and spent just over 3 hours there. Your ticket can be used one more time in 30 days. There is a passport system and oddly enough everyone takes part in entering all the different areas. There is a bit of interactive history going on and it makes it fun. I would not bring a child under 12. The exhibitions is really good.
It was a fun modern museum and I've learnt more about Ireland. Yet, it's more an experience than a museum. I'd suggest 3 things in which they could've improved: I'd have expected more items/relics that correspondent with those migration days. It's barely there. Also, it'd have been nice to see more stories/small films from common people, instead of arty folks. Third, it would have been nice if there was more to read. Now it feels it's very much focused on touch screens, to make sure American Gen Z doesn't lose their attention within 1 minute. Well, I think this is a losing battle. At least make it possible for people to read more about a topic instead of having to do the audio tour :)
