Heritage Week in Dublin – Time Vaults of Irish History
There’s plenty more Irish heritage to be discovered in the museum besides our Mythology room too! Our Time Vaults of Irish History take you on a journey through Irish history through the years, from the vikings right up to present day. All of the biggest figures in Irish history are represented, and what a better time to visit than during Heritage Week? Celebrate your Irish heritage by stepping back through time and meeting some of the greatest figures in Irish history.
The Time Vaults themselves are also steeped in history. The vaults used to house gold bullion and arms at the turn of the last century, and the vaults that hold the exhibits are the actual vaults which were used to hold the gold and arms!
