EPIC Museum

EPIC MUSEUM

Hi, I'm Paula and I'm going to write about the first five rooms of the Epic museum in Dublin.

The first room is an introduction to the country and it also has a board with typical landscapes of Ireland. 

The second room talks about how the Irish people left Ireland, for example: in the eighteenth century, they went in ships and the journey lasted five months but in the twentieth century, they could go by plane.

The third room talks about the arrival of the Irish people to the new countries and it also has screens which show some people explaining why they had to leave.

The fourth and the fifth rooms talk about why the Irish people had to leave their country. Some of them did it on their own because they wanted to travel, to teach poor children in other countries etc. The others fled because of the Great Famine (1845-1852) or to find a better job.


Hi I’m Cristina and I’m going to write about the following five rooms of the Epic Museum in Dublin. 

The sixth room talks about the conflicts in which Ireland were involved. These conflicts were usually at home against England, because of these wars many people went abroad to live. 
On the floor of this room, you can observe the names of some regiments and their symbols.
In this room, there are also two interactive tables that show you the stories of how Irish soldiers fought in conflicts far away from home.

The seventh room is called State and Society. This room talks about the laws that the Catholics and Irish Presbyterians had to follow. The laws were created by the English Government. 

The next three rooms talk about Irish and people with Irish offsprings who are highlighted, for example, in sports, in cinema, in literature, in music and so on. 

In the eighth room, there’s a collage with famous Irish people for example Tony McCoy, John F. Kennedy or Grace Kelly.

The ninth room talks about athletics and Irish people. You can use the interactive table to learn more about Irish sports or Irish sportsmen. 

The tenth room is about Gaelic sports which are the most famous sports in Ireland for example gaelic football, hurling and handball. 


Hi, I'm Amor and I'm going to discuss the next five rooms of the museum.

The name of the eleventh room is Discovering and Inventing. It shows you about the most important Irish minds from the last two centuries that have been necessary to achieve new goals in history, especially in medicine, technology and astronomy. 

The twelfth room is called Leading Change. In this gallery, you can hear some of the great speeches given by Irish emigrants that have inspired people to fight for causes or demand their rights, such as women’s equality.

The next gallery is Achieving Infamy. This is where you can see and read about the most infamy characters in the history of Ireland. If you want to know more juicy details, you just have to play a game on the big screen at the bottom of the gallery.

The fourteenth room is called Music and Dance. First, you find the process that Irish music has gone through up until now with some of thess musical instruments and musicians. If you keep walking along this room, you will find the most spectacular dancers in Irish dance and how they share the tradition with following generations.

Hi, I'm Mario and going to explain the last five rooms of the Epic Museum of Dublin.

The fifteenth room talks about food and drink in Ireland. It is decorated like the Irish pubs in London because the pubs are around the world, serving as an Irish embassy. In addition to this, at the sides there are two screenswith questions so we will know how much we know about the pubs.

The sixteenth room talks about how Ireland had a great influence on art and popular culture. This is seen in Philip Treacy, an Irish designer who has created hats for British royalty and for Harry Potter films.

The seventeenth room talks about the influence of Ireland in the narrative, and of writers like James Joyce, whose narrative has influenced comics, actors, speakers and poets.

The eighteenth room is the continuation of the previous one. Here we can find two interactive books that talk about Irish literature and illuminated books on the shelves that narrate fragments of the text.

In the nineteenth room, we can see the different Irish parties which are celebrated around the world, because the Irish love a good party!

Finally, the twentieth room is the last room in the museum, this explains the name of the museum, EPIC, which means Every Person Is Connected.
