The Elegant Archeology Museum of Ireland

The Archeology gallery of the National Museum of Ireland is a chock full of fascinating treasures.  The building itself is also remarkable.  I’ve enjoyed visiting this place with both Esther Sterchi and Amanda Bernhard (the famous Fulbright student).  Of particular interest at this museum: numerous bog bodies, “prehistoric” relics, the Viking exhibition, and the unimaginably long wooden boat that was carved from a single tree trunk (see the panorama below).

I love the design of the Museum.  I wish I could see it without the skylight blocked out, though.

  1. I went here for the first time just this weekend. The building is absolutely beautiful! It was a good museum, but like you, I spent a lot of time staring at the actual building while exploring. These are great photos – thanks for sharing!
