GPO Witness History Visitor Centre has received The Micheletti Award at the European Museum Academy Awards.

The prestigious Award is the European prize for innovative museums in the world of contemporary history, industry and science.

At an award ceremony in Skopje, Macedonia, the immersive visitor centre based in the heart of one of Ireland’s most historic buildings beat off stiff competition from attractions around Europe, including the German Football Museum in Dortmund, Opera del Duomo, Florence, Italy, and the European Solidarity Centre, Gdansk, Poland.

GPO Witness History affords visitors a chance to see a side of the building not usually available to the public, including a breath-taking courtyard at its centre.
