School Tours at the GPO Museum

GPO Museum

The GPO (General Post Office), is one of Ireland’s most famous buildings and it is the perfect school tour destination within Dublin. This award-winning museum offers engaging and educational tours to students of all ages.

Witness Ireland’s history from revolution to modern times dramatically unfold before your eyes! Key moments that shaped Ireland’s history are brought to life through electronic touch screens, film, video, audio visual booths, sound and authentic artefacts.

A school tour takes students behind the historic façade of the GPO and an immersive movie allows students to experience what it was like to be in the GPO and Dublin during Easter Week 1916, this most tumultuous time in Irish History.

The museum examines modern Irish History up to the present day and students have the opportunity to reflect on how the events of the 1916 Easter Rising, The Irish War of Independence, Irish Civil War and the “Troubles” and resulting Good Friday Agreement have shaped Ireland over the past 100 years.

The museum is delighted to partner with the Thomas Francis Meagher Foundation to feature the first permanent exhibition on the Irish Tricolour.
