Found this museum to be full of history and knowledge. It was a big interactive in parts and I found I could have spent many hours in this museum ready about history.

On a rainy afternoon we took our daughter here. She enjoyed the experience with the few activities for kids. It was definitely made for children. It was divided well into the three categories and not too overwhelming with information. We also enjoyed learning something of...More

The earlier part of Ireland's history was the best part of this exhibit. Lots of fun info about Vikings of the 800s and 900s. It's interactive so I think kids would enjoy it too. The later stages of the museum are good too but not...More

We had a really fun time touring the Dublinia exhibit. It's a fun and informative tour! They have plenty of activities for the whole family as well. The whole tour takes about 2-3 hours and is definitely worth a visit

Dublina is a fun and educational way to learn about the early and medieval history of Dublin. It's especially great for kids with interactive displays. It is right next to Christchurch cathedral and about a block from St. Audeon's, so you can easily combine several...More

An easy and amusing way to understand the viking period; we found the discount ticket in our hostel and so we decided to go and spend few hours visiting a well organised museum. Reccomended for families with children

Despite the tour guides claiming this is a "children's attraction," I found this delightful site fully capable of holding the attention of any age as they move through exhibits giving insights to the history of Dublin from pre-Viking to 19th century. True to advertising, one...More

Delighted that you enjoyed your visit to Dublinia, and sounds like you got absolutely everything out of it, including our Living History days, hopefully you got to grind a bit of grain yourself! Many thanks for your kind words. Kind Regards Mary-Therese Byrne

Wonderful back in time look at the Viking invasion through the medieval times, and finishing with notes on the archeological digs. Wish there were some actual artifacts on site but you certainly get a decent history. Your entry ticket includes access to the top of...More

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.
