EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum is billed as the world’s first purely digital museum. Situated on Dublin’s Custom House Quay, the museum’s exhibits are primarily delivered through interactive media and immersive installations. Visitors journey through the impressive vaults of The chq Building in Dublin’s Docklands, the original departure point for so many of Ireland’s emigrants.
Visitors begin their journey by receiving a souvenir passport as they enter the exhibition. They can use these to ‘check out’ of each gallery they explore. There are twenty themed galleries where visitors can immerse themselves in remarkable tales of sacrifice, endurance, heritage, adventure and discovery.
