  • Been to a few museums in Dublin and the exhibition design really stands out here. The passport stamping system brings you step by step through the different sections. History was never my favourite subject but I have to say that this is a well executed and present exhibition. The stories are brought to life very creatively. Really enjoyed it. The staff were very friendly and helpful too, met a lovely young German girl on the desk who was very engaging.
  • Beautiful museum! Loved it! After seeing many museum during my time in Dublin I was weary of visiting yet another one because each one demanded a lot of reading with very little interaction. EPIC was different. There's lots of interesting information but it's delivered through different media. Touch screen are in most rooms and you can read as much or as little as you want about the subjects on each screen. There is often a large screen displaying short films or reenactments. Very refreshing and informative. Would recommend to everyone and would definitely go back!
