I've been twice a few years apart- once with my brother (both of us adults) and once taking a kid (aged 12) - and everyone enjoyed it both times. Its a great way to learn at any age since it takes a different approach than...More

So much history, information and facts all in one place! An interactive experience not to be missed.

Bought a joint ticket with Cathedral next door, so the entrance was reasonable if you were visiting a museum. Unfortunately, Dublinia is not a museum, it's relatively simplistic cardboard experience designed for persons between 5 and 10 years of age.

I found the Dublinia experience very interesting. That they are living on a thousand years of history and are able to show how the city has grown from it's earliest days to modern times is of great use for all to see. I would be...More

While this could be thought of as a kids museum, it really has interesting displays and dioramas that appeal to adults as well. Definitely worth an hour and the price of admission.

This exhibition is on three levels dealing with Viking occupation; everyday life of the life of the people during Medieval times and on level 3 called History Hunters - archaeological discoveries

I took my ten year old son and one year old daughter to Dublinia. It’s a very touristy attraction which looks like it can be part of tourist trips as it is right in the center of Christchurch which is quite busy for traffic so...More

For someone who really knew nothing about the history of Dublin - and far less about the history of Ireland than I thought I knew going in - this exhibit provided a lot of sound information. This would be a great place for families....

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.

We only spent about an hour. - rather last century, I thought. You can get a double ticket that gets you into the adjacent church. I would recommend the new exhibition at the Post Office although it makes one embarrassed to... More
