If you visit Dublinia, you will learn a lot. Just know that the exhibit is older. We found it interesting and we visited at the end of the day when many of the other attractions in the areas were closing.

This was another somewhat busy attraction but the displays were fantastic and I enjoyed it very much. I wished I had had my kids with me as they would have had a wonderful time learning about Dublin's viking history.

An interesting and fun morning for any age. With lots of things to learn but also play with and do rubbings and interact with it's worth a visit.

there's more in York, we was there in October 2016 but due to floods a lot of it was closed. once it al re-opens it'd be a better choice than the Dublin one.

We only spent about an hour. - rather last century, I thought. You can get a double ticket that gets you into the adjacent church. I would recommend the new exhibition at the Post Office although it makes one embarrassed to... More
