Art and Industry Collections

Collections pertaining to the decorative arts and history are maintained by curators in the Art and Industrial Division.

Their role is to collect, manage, and preserve Ireland’s heritage in the decorative and applied arts, as well as its political, economic, military and social history.  The primary aim is to promote a wider understanding of Ireland’s cultural heritage and to highlight the country’s contribution to European decorative arts and in a broader international context.
