National Museum Of Ireland - Decorative Arts And History - Review
The National Museum of Decorative Arts and History is a part of a larger structure. 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 Museum of Decorative Arts is one of the two very important museums of Dublin. It is a wonderful collection of native art and history. It is a treat for both the culture seeker and the art lover.
The Irish silver collection is certainly worth a glance as many historical documents are preserved here with utmost care. The primitive costumes representing Irish History are held there. This particular exhibit is very popular and interesting. Several manuscripts preserve the tragic details of the independence war of Ireland and many more.

National Museum Of Ireland - Decorative Arts And History, Dublin Reviews
Really amazing I would say. The place just looks so spectacular from outside - like a palace. Inside, there are a ton of things that you can see. I really liked the war related stuff. And the costumes and furnitures section too. You will always find something that you love. Plus the entry is free and there are free Dublin city maps available at the reception. Very friendly staff as well.
One day is not enough to admire and enjoy the museum. The location is easy to reach. The majestic and struggling history of Ireland can be easier comprehended due to this museum. But it's not limited only to local pieces of ancestry but also has some international relics. It's a must do in Dublin. It has also a very cosy coffee restaurant. Try the desserts, you won't be disappointed.
There was a lot of cool exhibits at this museum. I would recommend it the most out the the three national museums in Dublin. Not a lot of interactivity though, some of the rooms were just a bunch of artifacts in glass displays, pretty uninteresting. The war section was very interesting and I enjoyed the furniture section too, the furniture from different eras is laid out like it would be, pretty cool. Definitely worth a visit while in Dublin.
I am American visiting Ireland and I must say this country has some amazing and rich history Ireland is such amazing country visiting this museum makes me want to lose my Southern American accent and get a Irish accent and become a citizen of Ireland.
Very full of interesting things to see... spent over two hours and only got through the first floor exhibits.
