An experience like no other

Being a fully interactive experience, the museum will guide you as you uncover the dramatic and inspiring stories of the Irish people who travelled the world, reliving some of their greatest achievements in music, literature, sport, politics, fashion and science.

From the celebrated to the unsung, these stories speak of a shared character; of creativity and strength, audacity and ingenuity, resilience and brilliance offering a unique lens through which this nation can be fully understood.
