  • 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!
