Dublinia – the Viking museum

Dublinia, which is connected to Christ Church Cathedral by a medieval footbridge, is a wonderful museum that details the period of Irish history when it fell under the rule of the Vikings in the Middle Ages. The museum has a fabulous collection of ancient artefacts and models that show us the way people lived and toiled during this time.
