Please Note: Proclaiming a Republic: The 1916 Rising is expected to be extremely popular for the first couple of months after opening.

Visitors may be asked to wait a short time before they can enter the new exhibition; in this event however the visitor can view the Museum’s other Exhibitions and Galleries or visit our award winning café.
