Epic The Irish Emigration Museum


EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum is an interactive experience. It will guide you on a journey to discover the stories of Irish emigration around the world, from early times to the modern day. Step through 20 themed galleries to find out why people left, see how they influenced the world they found, and experience the connection between their descendants and Ireland today.

Epic The Irish Emigration Museum

Epic The Irish Emigration Museum opened in May 2016 in the CHQ building in Dublin and celebrates the unique global journey of the Irish people, telling the story of the Irish people around the world using state-of-the-art technology to deliver incredible visual stories with a high level of interactivity.

A unique day out in Dublin located in the beautiful vaults of the iconic chq Building on Custom House Quay, visitors can follow a path through 20 immersive and interactive galleries illuminating the story of Ireland’s communities overseas – past, present and future.

Designed by Event Communications – the multi-award winning designers of Titanic Belfast, EPIC tells the authentic and epic story of 10 million journeys and the roots of 70 million people.

The galleries are organised into 4 compelling themes of migration, motivation, influence and connection. These themes explore the stories of adventure and tragedy that have shaped the narrative of Irish emigration – why people through the ages have left Ireland; the extraordinary influence of the Irish abroad in politics, business, science, sport and the arts; and how the technology of today has changed the emigrant experience.

As well as the high tech interactive exhibition, Epic The Irish Immigration Museum will also offer a state-of-the-art genealogy centre which will be operated by Eneclann, Ireland’s leading genealogical services provider. In addition to extensive, easy to use research facilities, the genealogy centre will also offer the latest DNA testing to help visitors explore their Irish roots.

The museum was founded by Neville Isdell, former Chairman and CEO of Coca Cola and member of the Irish diaspora himself. Neville left Ulster with his parents for Northern Rhodesia in the mid-1950s and has subsequently lived and worked outside Ireland for more than sixty years.

Visitors are invited to enjoy this self guided tour which is open 7 days a week from 10:00am – 5.00 pm, all year round apart from Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, & St. Stephens Day.
