The second exhibition is ‘Medieval Dublin’, where you learn of the warfare, crime and punishment, death and disease and even medical remedies of 700 years ago.

The third and final exhibition is the ‘History hunters’, in this exhibition you will see genuine Viking and Medieval artefacts including those of a medieval skeleton, found in Dublin. The exhibition even includes an excavation site and a lab for you to discover more and test your own newfound archaeology skills.
