I found my experience at Epic Museum to be wonderful. There was a Treasury of information in all areas from the Famine right up to the present and included the innovation and inventiveness of the Irish internationally in Politics, medicine, architecture etc.
I will definitely recommend a visit.

Definitely a “must visit” for Irish and visitors alike. The success of the Diaspora people would make us proud to be Irish.

Great even if not part of the diaspora. The story of emigration is the story of the world, and this museum entertainingly educates about that. It's worth an afternoon

As a Dub I really enjoyed the experience. But I think it's better suited to the tourist market.
