There are three branches of the National Museum of Ireland in Dublin: Decorative Arts & History in Collins Barracks, Natural History on Merrion Street (also known as the Dead Zoo), and Archaeology on Kildare Street. The Archeology arm holds an extensive collection of treasures within a magnificent Victorian Palladian building. The exhibits are dazzling, with treasures spilling over several floors—there’s a comprehensive display of Ireland’s prehistoric gold, Celtic art in The Treasury, and a fascinating collection of bog bodies. They've been perfectly preserved in Irish bogland since the Iron Age, still bearing the wounds that finished them off.
