Epic The Irish Emigration Museum has gathered together some of their favourite stories from their exhibition, and included them in a virtual tour of the museum for you to explore. #MuseumFromHome.
How to Get Started
- Simply navigate through the museum by touching/clicking at various points around the space (it’s just like using Google Maps and Street View)

- You can also view the museum floor plan or as a 3D model, by clicking on the buttons in the lower left hand side of the screen
- It can also be viewed as a VR tour if you have a VR headset (Google Cardboard or Samsung Gear). Click on the Headset icon on the bottom right on the screen to begin and follow the instructions. (Note: the additional pinned content will not be viewable in VR mode)
Europe’s Leading Tourist Attraction 2019 & 2020
Located in Dublin city centre, EPIC is a must-do for visitors and locals looking to get a deeper understanding of Ireland and what it means to be Irish. As you uncover the story of our emigrants and how they shaped the world, you’ll realise that emigration is not about what people leave behind, but what they bring with them.
The museum was founded on the belief that emigration is one of the most interesting ways to fully understand a country. Start planning your visit today.
