The museum was great but the location seemed bit grim and rough so glad i didn't visit with my children as right outside was a bloke injecting himself with drugs n asking for money

I had read a couple of bad reviews but we really enjoyed our visit! Lots of fun, loads for the children to see and helpful staff. Probably takes approx. 90 mins

I found this place not quite worth the entrance fee, saw everything in about an hour. They do have a part just for children that looked like ik might be fun.

This museum would be great for kids! All of the rooms have small buttons that you press for a commentary. This commentary is not just a historical speech though, it takes on the role of a character. At the moment they have a Halloween section which was a little scary, even for me.

I took the kids there for an afternoon. It's an activity that takes no more than an hour/hour and a half. Expensive enough to get in. Easy to find. One of the music mixing tables was broken, which was disappointing

Some of the exhibits are downstairs in the basement and there is even a halloween themed area which is sure to give you a fright! There is disabled access throughout which I thought was great.

Four of us visited on a visit to Dublin. The waxworks are interesting but much of the display is in a dark basement. The children's area is very limited and I would not recommend for young children. There is an interesting area about scientists although not in wax. The information boards are in very small writing and quite hard to... More
