We bring history to life for over a million visitors every year. At our three Dublin sites and one in Mayo, the National Museum of Ireland (NMI) holds the national collections of Archaeology, Decorative Arts, History, Ethnography, Folklife and Natural History in trust for the people of Ireland. Our mission is to put people – visitors, staff and partners – at the centre of all that we do, and engage with them in new and creative ways. And with over four million objects in our collections, we have a continual source of inspiration for our programmes. Discover an overview of major events and projects in 2018 and how the museum is marking the Centenary of Women’s Suffrage and Bringing History Alive in the booklets below:

The Working River, a Harmonious Relationship between City and Port
14/11/2018 - 14/11/2018 1.00-1.45pm
Dublin City’s relationship with the River Liffey has been an integral one since the first settlement. Significant sources survive that chart the growth and development of maritime activities along the river, while recent and current development on the riverfront help to expose its detail. The presentation by Niall Brady, Maritime Archaeologist and Director of The Archaeological Diving Company Ltd, highlights the work being done within Dublin Port as part of the Alexandra Basin Redevelopment project, and shows some of the findings that have been made. The age-old dynamic that dictates new design to meet increased trade remains as present today as it has done since the Viking Age, and listeners will sense the richness of the record that speaks to the lively and important history of Dublin’s growth as city and port. Please note: This lecture will take place at Dublin Port. Booking required. Please email educationarch@museum.ie or call 01 6486 334.Organised in association with Dublin Port.
