I thought the “underground bunker” vibe worked very well and the passports were a clever idea too to keep youngsters entertained.

I haven’t been to Dublin in years, so this was a new museum for me, and I am SO glad it’s here! The experience was lovely from getting your tickets to the very end. Each room is interactive, and the passport stamps are fun - even for adults! Highly recommend for a visit.

This museum is SO INTERESTING. It is modern education and fully interactive with technology with videos and music to interactive games and trivia. Fun combined with an education. Before going I wasn't really sure what to expect, sounded interesting and the ticket price was a good value, and I'm curious about my Irish heritage. After going, I feel very connected to and proud of the Irish people... all around the world. One of the BEST values for your money. Highly recommend.

It was extremely interesting to learn about the Irish Immigration, there were so many things to see, to discover. It was not a typical Museum, it was a modern one, the one you can spend 2h in without realising it. There were many short stories and films about Irish culture. I loved it! The best museum I have ever seen.
