Irish Emigration Museum EPIC, Dublin Photos

The Irish Emigration Museum (EPIC) traces the mass migration of Irish citizens fleeing famine and the impact of their culture on the countries in which they settled. The story is told using modern multimedia techniques. This museum is located in the remodeled (early 2000s) CHQ Building, originally a bonded customs warehouse (1817) designed by John Rennie & then Thomas Telford.
