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.

National Museum Of Ireland Archaeology, Dublin Reviews - Write a Review

  • Great government managed facility, and you can't find better value any were as there is free admission for all. Children of all ages will love this experience. Beautiful building, friendly staff and a great day out. the only down side is the lack of toilet facilities. If you have an interest in natural history this is a place not to miss, great for a family day out.

  • Poorly set out for casual visitors. Lacks interest. Initially looks good but once inside it is a drab and boring experience. It felt as if even the staff were disinterested. A real shame.

  • This was a nice museum for a nap when you are very jet lagged. Lots of dark rooms with benches for when your brother has to read every description plaquard. But really, this is a very good museum with a lot of variety of subject matter. Has great bog body specimens, natural history, Irish history, viking history, religious content, etc. Great musueum

  • Very clean and organized. Nicely arranged designated areas either by time period or concept. It was also free entry. Have a nice cafe inside. Restrooms have infant friendly changing tables.

  • A brilliant and fascinating way to experience Ireland's past. Great for tourists, but experiences like this are an absolute must for Irish people. It was incredible to see how people lived on our emerald isles years ago, when Ireland was truly exceptional. This museum gives us something to feel connected to, other than the Irish football team.
