National Maritime Museum
The Museum is housed in Dun Laoghaire’s 180-year-old Mariners Church, opposite the dlr Lexicon.
Experienced guides will bring you on a voyage of discovery enthralling you with stories of discovery, heroism, war and disasters at sea. You will learn about maritime history, exploration, navigation, radio, deep-sea cable technology, nature and art inspired by the sea and relevant to the school syllabus. See the revolving Baily Optic, try the electrified steam engine and pause to reflect at the Titanic exhibit, the Royal Navy prisoner’s docks and war memorial. Try sailor’s knots, learn how they lift heavy weights, be photographed with the pirate and much more. A real family experience with lots to entertain the children.
Open 7 days a week from 11am to 5pm.
