I love museums so have been to many, and I can say that this is one of the best of its kind I've ever visited. Intelligently done, artistically laid out. The exhibits appeal to both children and adults. The only problem I had was that the day was visited there were so many people there that I couldn't hear the... More

I was in Dublin for the weekend and having done some searching for museums etc to visit Dublinia popped up as one option. It's located right beside Christ Church Cathedral so you can visit both at the same time if you like. This is an unguided tour (you get a map) with a mixture of live displays and other exhibits....

A great experience for kids or people new to viking history, but a lot of the information is very basic. Lots of fun things to do though. Costumes to wear and interactive exhibits. Good fun all in all.

Very interesting place to visit to learn all about Vikings! Very well set out and interactive in places. Gives a good feel how things were in that period of history. Reasonably priced. Easy to find. Staff helpful. We have nothing like this in Australia, so we found it quite interesting.

You will spend around 2 hours in the museum. It is informative and entertaining. It is aimed for children as there are a lot of interaction points (trying on viking helmets or clothes). But any good humored 'adult' will have a great time as well. It gives you a brief history on vikings, viking lifestyle and Dublin in the early... More

This was a very interesting tour - learned about the Vikking influence on Dublin, the medieval period, how Dublin got its name, its place in trade and extremely educational.

This was a great interactive museum experience with live docents role playing as Vikings, Medieval merchants and more. Provided a terrific historical background on the evolution of Dublin from Viking trading post to the Capitol City of Ireland. Loved the electronic and digital interactive exhibits in addition to the Viking and Medieval life size displays of life in auld Dublinia.
