    An excellent museum for Irish history
    If you are interested in learning about Irish history, particularly about the Easter uprising, this is the place to go. Extremely well done, informative and instructional, with varying media to relay the info--videos, pictures, tapes. There's an interesting evaluation at the end of the tour just as you are leaving (a kind of computer-generated multiple choice thing) which makes you reflect on your learning there. I highly recommend.

    Great .
    Originally built as the main post office (GPO), in early 19th Cent., in Georgian architecture style. During the Easter Rising of 1916, the GPO served as the headquarters of the uprising's leaders. Today, the beautiful building still serves as a post office and it holds an interesting small museum .

    Heritage retold.
    The General Post Office located in an imposing heritage building at Dublin serves connecting people all over the world. This is at O'Connell Street and one of the iconic buildings in Dublin. This is the same famous place that served as headquarters of Irish leaders who fought against British rule. As we visited the Post Office during Christmas,it was beautifully decorated and full of exciting activities. There is a separate philately collection apart from all other postal services.

The Post Office was fascinating and the museum was superb in terms of the informative displays. A first class experience and a must visit when you are in Dublin.

Well worth the ticket price. They give you headphones for a self guided tour. Recommend going early because the museum is fairly small and it's nice to go when it's not too crowded. The gift shop connected with the museum has a selection of books and material for follow up.

The GPO museum Is extremely well done and provides a great overview of the 1916 Rising and the Irish war of independence. Spending time here first will give you a much greater depth of understanding for visiting other sites in the city. The videos are particularly well done!

Fantastic exhibits and well set up. The audio guide is also very helpful and interesting. Location on O’Connell street is also brilliant considering the number of historical events that took place on this street.

Only negative is slightly pricey (€15 per person) relative to other Dublin museums which are either free or €10 or less.

I visited this building yesterday, only noticing the signs. I was curious and went in, firstly it wasn’t clear what was going on in terms of the setup, there was two parts to the building. Locals pushed in, in front of me.

Anyway, I got in and it just appeared to be a post office. I asked a worker if there was a tour and got a very blunt “no”, he did not expand upon that. I don’t understand what the blunt and Curt response was all about? Why would he just say “no” to a tourist?

I am Northern Irish. I do not know if this was prejudice or what but it gave the vibe of not wanting me there. Everything in Northern Ireland is reopened and has been for over a month now. Most facilities in Dublin are closed.
