Glasnevin Cemetery Museum chronicles Ireland's social and political developments of the last two centuries. The museum's exhibits recount the tales of those buried in the country's largest non-denominational graveyard, the resting place of over 1.5 million people. The centerpiece of the museum is an interactive digital timeline narrating the stories of the cemetery's notable residents, which include prominent national figures Daniel O'Connell, Charles Stewart Parnell, Michael Collins, and Eamon de Valera. You can explore your own Irish heritage by using the museum's genealogy research center, and finish your visit by joining a guided tour of the cemetery, nicknamed "Croak Park" by the waggish locals.
