GPO Witness History Visitor Centre Admission Ticket
Award winning GPO Witness History is located in the historical GPO (General Post Office) building on O’Connell Street in the heart of Dublin. The GPO was the communications hub of Ireland and headquarters of the men and women who took part in the 1916 Easter Rising. This hugely significant event in Irish history led eventually to the creation of the Irish Republic. The experience focuses on the 1916 Easter Rising and modern Irish history through electronic touch screens, video, audio visual booths, sound and authentic artefacts.
GPO Witness History is a brand new permanent visitor attraction in the iconic GPO (General Post Office) building on O’Connell Street, Dublin. This highly immersive and engaging exhibition puts you right inside the GPO during Easter Week in 1916.
History will come to life as you experience events from both sides of the conflict and through the eyes of bystanders caught in the crossfire through electronic touch screens, video, audio visual booths, sound and authentic artefacts – many previously unseen.
You’ll be immersed in the action as you compose newspaper reports, examine the original copy of the Proclamation and send Morse code to declare the Irish Republic by radio. After the exhibition, you can relax and reflect in the café and retail store overlooking the courtyard. The courtyard is also home to a commissioned sculpture called ‘They are of us all’, commemorating the forty children who died during the Easter Rising.
