Museum of Decorative Arts & History at Collins Barracks open as usual during renovation work

After three centuries of serving as a barracks and then as a museum, Collins Barracks needed some renovation work to ensure its longevity.


After three centuries of serving as a barracks and then as a museum, Collins Barracks needed some renovation work to ensure its longevity.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused during the work and would like to remind you we're open as usual.

Come in and enjoy our various exhibitions. Discover more about 1916 in our Proclaiming a Republic: The 1916 Rising Exhibition or learn about the Irish at wars in our Soldiers & Chiefs exhibition. We also have a fantastic new glass sculpture exhibition called CAUTION! Fragile – Irish Glass, Tradition in Transition, featuring our renowned Artist in Residence for 2018, Róisín de Buitléar

Our museum shop and café are open as usual too.

The Education Department runs regular events for families through quarterly Calendar of Events, even during the renovation work. Visit our What's On page for more information.

Visit us Tuesday to Saturday from 10am to 5pm and from 2pm to 5pm on Sunday.
