This newly located and reinvented museum is a fun and interactive experience for all ages. The attraction gives an overview of Irish history through the ages from the Bronze Age up to present day Ireland, and every important era in between. Those with a nervous disposition watch out for the terrifying Chambers of Horror where visitors are sure to get a scare! Learn about everything from how the body works to how the solar system works in the Science and Discovery Zone. Hang among the giants of Irish literature in a themed Bar overlooking the Spire, get transported right into a classic music video at the Wax Factor Studios and of course, like any wax museum, get up close and personal to Waxworks of the biggest stars in the world for amazing photo ops.
There is even something for the little ones as they can meet all the biggest children’s characters in the Kids Zone and everyone can experience an awesome Virtual Reality adventure along the way.
