Junior Explorer Tours Return!
Attention early risers! On Tuesday and Thursday mornings throughout August, the GAA Museum’s mascot Cluasóg, the Irish hare, will hop into action for a special Summer series of Junior Explorer Family tours.
These family friendly tours will bring to life the magic of the home of Gaelic games for younger visitors.
On arrival, your family will be greeted by Cluasóg, who can't wait to meet and get photos with a whole new bunch of friends!
Tours run every Tuesday and Thursday at 10.30am throughout August!
Next you go behind-the-scenes and learn fun facts about the GAA and Croke Park. During the Stadium Tour, your intrepid little explorers will get to visit the team dressing rooms and warm-up area and run out pitchside through the players’ tunnel.
Back at the GAA Museum, children will then receive a Junior Explorer Passport so they can follow clues throughout the Museum with their tour guide. They’ll discover some of the museum’s most famous exhibits including the original Sam Maguire and Liam MacCarthy cups along the way. If the group find all the clues… all younger visitors will receive a special Junior Explorer surprise!
Another highlight for many boys and girls (and mums and dads!) is the museum’s Interactive Games Zone, where the future All-Stars can test their own hurling and football skills.
Junior Explorer Tours are recommended for all family members but will be of particular interest for children of 8 years of age and under. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
Junior Explorer Tours will depart from the GAA Museum at 10.30am on Tuesdays and Thursdays throughout August and will last approximately 1.5 hours (including time in the Museum and a meet and greet with Cluasóg). The route is fully accessible for buggies. Advance online booking is recommended. Free parking is available, as well as the Museum’s Blackthorn Café for a snack afterwards.
