Hi-tech history that is truly inspiring

In a collision of tales and technology, EPIC tells the story of 1200 years of Irish history. You and your students will be immersed in - and perhaps surprised by – the legends and legacies that meander through the historic vaults of the CHQ Building.

In an unlikely merge of history, culture and state-of-the-art interactive technology, Irish history, identity and influence truly come to life. From high-tech touch screens and motion sensor quizzes; from a whispering library to atmospheric video imagery – EPIC is an ode to cross-curricular exploration, innovative education, and overall, it’s fun for everyone!
