Irish author Bram Stoker needs your help! His famous character Dracula, a notorious vampire, has somehow escaped from his book in our Storytelling Gallery and into the vaults of EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum. Can you and your family help track him down and spell him back from whence he came?
This themed tour includes a walkthrough of EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum where working with our guide, you and your family will locate clues hidden in our galleries to Dracula’s whereabouts. Along the way you’ll discover more about Bram Stoker’s life and the famous novel Dracula that shaped how the world imagines vampires today. You’ll also stop off for a Storytelling session, where Bram will bring to life some tales of creatures from Irish history and folklore that may have inspired Bram’s creation, and work together to create your very own vampire myth, suitable for the Ireland of today.
