Not so much a museum as a tour of a demo studio with a few exhibits thrown in, the Rock ‘n' Roll Museum opened to some fanfare in 2015. The tour culminates with the chance to form a “band” with your fellow visitors and lay down a track in the studio. Exhibits on display include vintage instruments and assorted memorabilia, such as a blank check signed by Bono for an autograph hunter. Outside, on Curved Street, is the Irish Music Wall of Fame, where giant photographic portraits of Ireland’s top music stars, including Van Morrison, U2, and the Cranberries, adorn one side of the building.
