New Junior Explorer Tour at the GAA Museum
Attention weekend early risers! The GAA Museum at Croke Park is launching a new Junior Explorers Tour for young families on Saturday mornings starting on 25th February. The tour has been created to bring to life the magic of the home of Gaelic games for younger visitors.
On arrival, your family will be greeted by the Museum’s mascot, Cluasóg the Irish hare, who will pose for photos and get everyone excited about the adventure ahead.
Next you embark on on behind-the-scenes tour of the famous stadium and learn fun facts about the GAA and Croke Park. During the stadium tour, your little ones will get to visit the team dressing rooms and warm-up areas 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!
Another highlight for many boys and girls (and mums and dads!) is the Museum’s Interactive Games Zone, where you can test your own hurling and football skills – see how fast your family can react, check your passing skills and practice a fingertip save or the art of the high catch!
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 on February 25th at 10.30 and will continue every Saturday morning until April 29th.
