The history of Ireland is a long and fascinating one, from Neolithic civilizations to the Vikings of Dublin, there is so much to learn! Get an up-close look by exploring the National Archaeology Museum of Ireland. Of all the exhibits, the most fascinating is likely "Kingship and Sacrifice". On display are remarkably preserved bodies, discovered in several of Ireland's bogs, that date all the way back to the Iron Age! The exhibit explains the theory that they may have been victims of human sacrifice and tells a tale of Ireland's sovereignty and kingship rituals in 400 to 200 BC. Each of Ireland's national museums are free to the public, so you can spend as little or as much time as you like exploring. Allow anywhere from 20 minutes to 1 hour in the museum.
