The best museum I've ever been to...

"This is not a classic museum, it is a museum experience. It is very interactive and so is great for kids. You can take in as much information in as much time as you would like."

Kerry721, Waterloo, Belgium 


"This was nothing like i expected. I had seen pictures of others peoples visits but nothing tops actually seeing it in person. Very informative, very interactive!"

Best thing to do in Dublin!

"Anyone that is visiting Ireland must go to Dublin to visit the EPIC museum, it’s a self guided museum where you walk through different sections and learn all about Irish history and culture."
