Immigration Museum - Leaving Dublin

On our way home from The Shrine of Remembrance we stopped in at the Immigration Museum.

The Leaving Home gallery was rather moving for me as it brought back memories of our own initial immigration to New Zealand and then to here.

We took some time to explore the Immigrant Stories and Timeline gallery. It was interesting reading about all the things immigrants did years ago. The time line covers pre 1830 to 2000s.

The children enjoyed exploring Journey's of a Lifetime. My favourite display were meeting the rats who came over to Australia!

 We took some time to enjoy making Claddagh Crowns and an Illuminated Bookmark. This holiday program is running until January 29th.

Upstairs the children partook in making a plane out of recycled materials and adding them to the In-Flight installation.

We will definitely take the time to explore this museum in a little more detail.



  1. Great photos. The immigration museum is the one place we haven't explored when we are in Melbourne.

    1. Thank you :) It's taken us six years to finally get there and I'm so pleased that we finally did

  2. This looks marvellous. I must try to get there before it closes. Thanks.
