EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum is an immersive experience located in Dublin’s Docklands. Be inspired on a journey through 20 interactive galleries to discover the stories of Irish emigration around the world, from early times to the modern day. Over the centuries, some 10 million people have left the island of Ireland. At EPIC you can step through 20 themed galleries to find out why people left, see how they influenced the world they found, and experience the connection between their descendants and Ireland today. Immerse yourself in the stories of some of the most remarkable tales of sacrifice, endurance, adventure, and discovery the world has ever known. EPIC brings these amazing stories to life in a unique and spectacular way. Opened in May 2016, EPIC has quickly become one of Dublin’s best rated attractions and museums.
