Bonus Experiences for GAA Museum Visits this June
As matches return to our television screens, our appetite for live sport has never been bigger. While we can’t attend games in person just yet, a visit to the GAA Museum is just the ticket we all need!
And for the month of June, tickets for a self-guided visit to the GAA Museum will now include the following added extras:
- A walk pitch side to take a photo at Ireland's most famous field.
- A chance to see the museum’s short film ‘September Days’ which tells the story of Croke Park on All-Ireland Sundays.
- The Junior Explorer museum trail for younger visitors.
All ticket holders will also have access to the museum’s two floors of Gaelic Games exhibits and artefacts. There is a chance to see the original Sam Maguire and Liam MacCarthy trophies as well as footage of the greatest players of all time in action in the Hall of Fame
. There are also some surprises including Sam Maguire’s pocket watch, Michael Cusack’s blackthorn stick, Muhammad Ali’s boxing gloves and Jack Lynch’s medal collection.
For those interested in Irish history, the museum charts the links between the development of modern Ireland and Gaelic games and the collection includes an original Proclamation of the Irish Republic from 1916 as well as a War of Independence medal and letters between the founders of the GAA.
Museum tickets also includes entry to the Remembering Bloody Sunday
exhibition unveiled in 2020 to mark 100 years since the tragedy in Croke Park. It focuses on the stories of the victims and charts events of the day from morning to evening with personal items belonging to those who died on display.
The GAA Museum is open Monday to Sunday throughout June and visitors must book tickets at www.crokepark.ie/gaamuseum
