Take your class on a journey of discovery

Imagine – a museum with no artefacts! EPIC is truly a museum for the digital age, and with more steps being taken towards digital learning, it is the perfect place for your school tour.

The museum has 20 interactive galleries and explores global Irish history and identity from many different angles – whether your students are interested in politics, science, art and design, fashion, engineering or sport. With ties to the primary school curriculum, your students will learn something new, and have loads of fun – all at the same time!
