The National Museum of Archeology and History is a part of a larger group. The National Museum of Ireland is funded and operated by the Irish government. The institution consists of four stalwart museums in the city. The National Museum of Archeology, the National Museum of Country Life, Museum of Decorative Arts and History and the Museum of Natural History which are in different parts of the city are all a part of it.

The archaeology museum is quite well known for its rich collection. The history of Ireland has been brilliantly documented here.

  • This is a great museum. It is laid out well and there are plenty of guides to assist. I expected a huge crowd in the month of June, but was pleasantly surprised that it was busy but not crowded. There is a fantastic mineral collection and you have to go see and learn about the bog men! The gift shop is very nice. Highly recommend this stop when you are in Dublin.

  • It's always such a pleasure going to this museum. There is no entrance fee and every time I've been I've learned something new about the Irish history and Archaeology. I could spend the full day in there and still probably not get through every section and fully examine and learn from the displayed specimens to fully appreciate each item. They have a gift store and a small cafe within the building as well.

  • Great museum, lots of artifacts from old ages. Very well organized and maintained. Best of all its free admission. MUST CHECK if you in Dublin.

  • Great survey of ancient Irish history! I was stunned by the level of scholarship and detail that went into the displays in this museum. The section on Viking Dublin was particularly good, and provided a glimpse into how this great city was during the very beginning, and what it would have been like to love there. Outstanding, and free!

  • Very well maintained, full of artifacts and history. Great archaeological museum. Best of all its free to get in. Super recommend!!
