1916 Object Stories - Online Resource

A new online resource designed for primary and post primary teachers and students based on key objects from the National Museum's Easter Week Collection will be available from December 2016. This resource will feature high quality images of a bicycle, medical bottles, flags and many other objects used in 1916. It will also include fact sheets, video, activities and teachers notes.

We're continually improving and adding to our online Museum resources. If you are looking for information on exhibitions and collections take a look around the website:


Teachers In-service

While we do not currently run teachers in-service courses, we do facilitate a number of annual in-service visits run by external coordinators. If you would like to bring an in-service group to the Museum contact Catherine McGuiness on 01 6486 453.


Meet The Educator

Teachers can talk to a member of the Museum’s Education team in person at the Museum or over the phone in advance of their visit to the Museum. Contact the bookings office to make an appointment.

The Museum’s educators can help teachers prepare for their visits by providing information, expert knowledge and resources on the Museum’s exhibitions, as well as advice on pre and post visit activities and tips on how to bring groups around the Museum.
