Fodor's Expert Review EPIC Irish Emigration Museum

The Northside Museum/Gallery
It's fitting that Ireland's emigration museum should be housed near the Dublin docks where so many said goodbye to their island home forever. Deep in the redbrick vaults of the CHQ building, each visitor gets a symbolic "passport" before touring the 20 educational and interactive galleries. The focus is on digitally retelling the moving, human stories of the people who were forced to leave, the adventures and struggles they had, and the huge diaspora they left all over the world. There's a gallery dedicated to famous folk who claim Irish heritage, including numerous U.S. presidents such as Barack Obama, and outlaws like Billy the Kid.
