The National Wax Museum Plus Tours

star-4
84 Reviews
The National Wax Museum Plus
A visit to Dublin’s National Wax Museum Plus is an entertaining experience suitable for the whole family. Snap a selfie with wax models of the members of the band U2, learn about Irish history through the ages, and discover the works of important Irish writers and scientists. You can even make a wax mold of your own hand.

The Basics
The museum is spread over four floors and divided into themed rooms. In the Great Irish Writers Room, pay your respects to some of the nation’s best writers, who are seated in a pub as if they’re ready to toss back a few pints. Then, pose for pictures with the likes of Hannibal Lecter in the Chambers of Horror. The Wax Factor Studios transport you into a classic music video, and the Science and Discovery Zone shows you how lots of things work, from the body to the solar system.

To save time at the entrance, book your admission ticket online in advance. Dublin Pass holders can enter the museum free of charge.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The National Wax Museum Plus is a must-do for families and travelers interested in Irish cultural history.
  • Visitors receive a map of the museum at the entrance.
  • Children and senior citizens get a discount on the price of admission, as do students who present valid ID.
  • The museum has an on-site gift shop.
  • The museum is wheelchair-accessible. Due to space constraints, visitors must leave strollers at the reception area.

How to Get There
Located in the city center, the museum is a short walk from attractions such as the Temple Bar. The closest DART train station is Tara Street, a 5-minute walk away. The closest Luas tram stops are St. Stephen’s Green (Green Line) and Jervis (Red Line), and the nearest city bus stop is Dame Street—each is a 10-minute walk from the museum. The hop-on hop-off bus tour route includes some nearby stops as well.

When to Get There
The museum is open every day from 10am to 10pm (except December 24–26). Last admission is at 9pm. Arrive early to beat the crowds.

Wax Hands
For a unique keepsake, don’t forget to stop by Wax Hands, located inside the museum’s gift shop. You dip your hand into cold water, then warm wax, to create a mold that you get to take home. Choose from a variety of colors.

Stories of Dublin: An audio tour from St Patrick's Cathedral to Merrion Square

This self-guided audio walking tour is a trip back in time to explore some of Dublin's most iconic landmarks. We’ll take in some of Georgian Dublin along with city parks, traditional bars, cathedrals and many other famous sites on a stroll across this charm-laden city. You’ll also hear fun facts and tales about its history, culture and people – like rock band U2 and the rebellious Daniel O'Connell as well more ordinary folk. While we walk you’ll notice how lively Dublin is with some 751 pubs. A lot of them are beautifully decorated, but O'Neill's opposite the Molly Malone statue is one of the best on our route. The food is excellent too. Dublin also has an abundance of museums. There are 45 in all and most of them are free to visit. Two of the best are the National History Museum and the Little Museum of Dublin. I’ll guide you to both of them, and I highly recommend popping into them either before, after or during our tour.
