  • Very well put together. It is explained and presented in a chronological way which is divided up into different factors of the disaster. Very educational and delivers the hard facts about what happened and who did what in that process. Overall this exhibition really struck a cord with me and however sad I felt in there, people need to visit in order to understand our history of Ireland and the foundation of its diaspora around the world. I think there should be far greater funding from the government for exhibitions like this as it’s the biggest change our country has ever gone through.
  • Would highly recommend it. Very informative and interesting. A chance to look back on our country's far past! Come here! πŸ˜„πŸ‘ - By an 11 year-old boy!
