The Irish Emigration Museum offers a great immersive experience. It explains very thoroughly the causes of emigration during the centuries and shows how the emigrants were treated. It also shows how they influenced the countries they arrived.It’s really a must! Other countries have a similar experience with emigration but I’ve never seen such curated museum.
There are many great museums in Dublin, but my favorite is the EPIC (Irish Immigration Museum) by the river Liffey.
As we all know, Ireland is not big, but it is an important immigrant exporting country. For hundreds of years, the footprints of Irish immigrants have spread all over North America, Britain, Australia and even China... Every immigrant has a profound historical and historical background, or because of the great famine. , Or because domestic job opportunities are scarce...
Behind every immigrant or immigrant family, there are unknown stories. Compared with the vast history of mankind, they may seem insignificant, but they are carefully recorded here. Tell people to go, why these people who have left their hometowns left their homeland to go to a foreign country with an uncertain future.
EPIC uses live but not boring examples and evidence in just two hours to try to lead people back to the scene of history. Those strangers seem to be your relatives and friends. It tells the story of mankind’s search for new life and pursuit of dreams. Courage and hope.
Courage and hope are two good words.
