Discovering Irish emigrants and their terrible journeys

EPIC Museum - EPIC Ireland CHQ Limited

They were more than 10 million Irish people who left their country to reach new horizons. 10 million to make perilous and sometimes deadly journeys, to escape poverty, famine, or simply to try their luck elsewhere…

Piled up on unhealthy ships, suffering from disease or hunger… The journeys of these Irish have not always been salutary and have sometimes taken on tragic dimensions.

Such are the stories told by the EPIC Museum, which endeavours to accurately portray the conditions of Irish emigration in all their forms.

The exhibition is ultra-modern: giant screens, an interactive experience, all in rooms with exposed stone walls and authentic vaults: everything is done to plunge into the heart of the history of these Irish expatriates.

The museum devotes a large part of its exhibition to the Irish diaspora in the United States, their living conditions there, and the expansion of Irish culture in America, as in the city of Boston.

The museum is grandiose, interesting for older children and teenagers alike, and will offer you an interactive experience of rare effectiveness.

A must-do museum!
