Things to do: Children go free at Dublin’s EPIC museum this weekend

The last few days of the summer holiday of 2022 are here.

Back to school is just around the corner, and many families across the country are trying to make the most of these next couple of days.

And if you are planning a trip to Dublin over the weekend, you might be on the lookout for fun things to do with the kids?

Well, look no further.

This Saturday and Sunday, children go free at EPIC, the Irish Emigration Museum when accompanied by a paying adult – and if you haven’t been before, it is definitively worth the trip.

Voted Europe’s Leading Tourist Attraction three times in a row in the World Travel Awards, EPIC offers an unforgettable day out thanks to the totally immersive and state-of-the-art experience that awaits all visitors.

Both kids and adults alike will love the interactive installations at EPIC, whether swiping through the educational quizzes, dancing to Riverdance or listening to the whispering library, they’ll be entertained throughout, all while bringing Irish stories to life.

EPIC was created to honour the Irish diaspora abroad and recognise the vital contributions and monumental impact Irish people have made worldwide. By combining personal emigrant perspectives with social and cultural context, visitors can understand why a person left Ireland and the beliefs and heritage they brought with them.

At the Docklands-based museum you get to uncover the dramatic and inspiring stories of the Irish people who travelled the world, reliving some of their greatest achievements in music, literature, sport, politics, fashion, science and more.
