The GPO Witness History museum is a highly immersive and engaging exhibition that puts you right inside the GPO during Easter Week in 1916!
The lovely team at the museum have given us some FREE family passes to give to NRC customers!! To win all you have to do is pop over to our Facebook page and answer the following question: The GPO Witness Museum is located on O’Connell Street. What was this street previously known as? (Don’t forget to like and share the post too!)
History will come to life as you experience events from both sides of the conflict and through the eyes of bystanders caught in the crossfire through electronic touch screens, video, audio visual booths, sound and authentic artefacts – many previously unseen.
You’ll be immersed in the action as you compose newspaper reports, examine the original copy of the Proclamation and send Morse code to declare the Irish Republic by radio.
After the exhibition, you can relax and reflect in the café and retail store overlooking the courtyard. The courtyard is also home to a commissioned sculpture called ‘They are of us all’, commemorating the forty children who died during the Easter Rising.
So if you’re looking for something to do with the kids over the holidays why not pop over to the NRC Facebook page and enter our competition and you could be going along to this fantastic museum over the summer!
