Jeanie Johnson Tall Ship/ Famine Museum

010It may seem strange to board a sailing ship in Dublin docks that is going nowhere on the tide and that is, instead, a museum of sail and emigration.
However, although in port, it is a living history museum on nineteenth‑century emigration, the replica Jeanie Johnston is also designed as an ocean-going training vessel at sea.
The Jeanie Johnston Tall Ship and Museum enables visitors to see what it was like on board a wooden tall ship during the Famine era of mid-nineteenth‑century Ireland.
Poverty-stricken Irish emigrants boarded the sturdy ship for the difficult transatlantic voyage and an uncertain future in the New World of America.
