An interesting exhibition especially the video re-enactments. Would of liked more info on the actual Easter Rising in the static exhibition. Enjoyed the photos of Michael Collins and De Valeras Order of the Day.

If you have an interest in the Easter rebellion, and you should, the display here is excellent. Interactive, a short movie dramatization, and some good exhibits. It helps you understand the mentality of the rebels and their fate. This was not open the last time...More

Nice, interesting museum. I learned a lot about the 1916 uprising and how it transformed Ireland. Would be good if there was more info about The Troubles.
