This museum provides excellent exhibits to retell the story of Dublin through the centuries. It is highly recommended for younger children as there are interactive exhibits for them to explore. Tickets bought in advance are recommended as the entry lines can occasionally be quite long,...More

My husband and I visited earlier this week and we're quite disappointed with this attraction. We were expecting a museum and what we got was more of a hands on learning experience. There was nothing wrong with this attraction just not what we expected. This...More

Dublinia was very educational and interactive. Great for kids and adults. Beautiful views at the top of the tower. Worth the 94 steps.

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.
