Things to see:

Viking Exhibition

Go back to the dawn of Dublin and learn a thing or two from the Vikings. The long voyages across the sea made the Vikings hardy warriors and visitors to this exhibition can learn effective battle skills, as well as try on common day clothes and the shackles under which Viking slaves were kept. You can also learn the Viking alphabet and teach yourself about the poetry, tales and legacies which the Vikings have left behind.

Medieval Exhibition

Go back in time 700 years to the bustling dirty streets of the city in the Middle Ages when Strongbow and the Reformation were the main social and political governments. This exhibition will teach visitors about medieval warfare, crime, punishment and death and disease which was rife throughout the city. You can even step inside a young merchants kitchen and really experience how street life was in the Middle Ages.

History Hunters Exhibition

Dig a little deeper into Dublin’s rich history with the History Hunters and learn from archaeology exhibits how our ancestors lived through historic artefacts, manuscripts and real medieval skeletons! Learn the native languages of old Dublin and bring back with you a new found appreciation of Ireland’s capital city’s past.
