Junior Explorer Tours Return!

BUY TICKETS


Attention weekend early risers! Are you looking for a Saturday morning activity that’s a bit more exciting than a trip to the playground?

The GAA Museum at Croke Park has announced it will be bringing back it’s wildly popular Junior Explorer Tour for young families on Saturday mornings from 23rd February to 18th May. An additional tour has also been added on Friday 22nd February to kick start the tours during their mid-term break! 

Tours run every Saturday at 10.30am until 18th May!

The family-friendly tour, created to bring to life the magic of the home of Gaelic games for younger visitors, was a sell-out success last year with the countries littlest GAA fans taking over the iconic stadium.

On arrival, your family will be greeted by the Museum’s mascot, Cluasóg the Irish hare, who can't wait to meet and get photos with a whole new bunch of friends!

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 badge and sticker pack! 

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. 

Tours will depart from the GAA Museum at 10.30am and will continue on Saturday mornings (subject to GAA fixtures) until 18th May. Junior Explorer Tours lasts approx. 1.5 hours (including time in the museum and a meet and greet with Cluasóg) and 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.
