“When I die Dublin will be written in my heart.” – James Joyce
Bloomsday is celebrated all over the world, but there is no better setting than in the heart of Dublin city, the birthplace of James Joyce and location of the novel the day celebrates. Bloomsday is named after Leopold Bloom, the main character of Ulysses. Arguably James Joyce’s best known work, it details what happens to Leopold Bloom over the course of the 16th of June, 1904 (which is why the 16th of June has now become know as Bloomsday). On the 16th of June every year Dublin is full of excitement and the Wax Museum Plus is no exception! This year from the 16th to the 19th of June, if you mention Bloomsday at the museum, you’ll receive 20% off entry!
Bloomsday in the Wax Museum Plus
Here in the museum, we’re very proud of Ireland’s many literary geniuses. Our country has a proud tradition when it comes to literature, and there are too many great writers to even mention. As such, only the best of the best make the cut for our Great Irish Writer’s Room. But even in such company, James Joyce stands out as one of the most recognisable and accomplished figures in the room. In celebration of Bloomsday on the 16th and 18th of June from 10-5, we will be doing readings of excerpts from Ulysses. It’s the perfect opportunity to pay homage to the great man himself and hear his world renowned writings. Whether you’re an avid Joycean scholar, newly interested in his work or even just curious to see what all the fuss is about, everyone’s invited to spend some time soaking in the knowledge in our Writer’s Room.
And that’s only one room of the museum! There’s loads more to see and do, so join Leopold and Molly Bloom along with Mr. Joyce himself and celebrate Bloomsday in Wax Museum fashion.
Come for the great James Joyce, stay for everything else we have to offer!
