National Museum of Ireland - Archaeology Reviews
Para no ser tan grande tiene muchas exhibiciones, y muy bien puestas, vale mucho la pena la visita, inclusive si traes niños lo van a disfrutar more »To not be so big has many exhibitions, and very well put, it is worth the visit, even if you bring children they will enjoy it
The gallery has works from the greatest artists since paint was invented. The flow of the gallery was easy to not miss anything. This was equal in quality, but not quantity, to the London Gallery. Add... more »
One of the museums that we had a chance to stop and look at while on our travels. The outside is so beautiful and the collection that they have is outstanding. I love the different tile work on the floor. Also liked that they had a gift shop and that it was free to the public.
Great place to learn about Irish history. Has many interesting exhibits ranging from the stone age, all the way to the medieval times. All items are very well preserved with appropriate labels which indicate the name and place of origin. One of the highlights of this museum are the bog men, which are very well preserved. The building itself has amazing architecture and an interesting layout. Fantastic for rainy days, or if you're a history enthusiast or simply wish to know more about Irish history.
