The health and safety of our visitors and staff is of paramount importance to us and as such, we are re-opening the National Museum of Ireland on a phased basis.

The NMI - Decorative Arts & History at Collins Barracks, Dublin 7, and the NMI - Country Life at Turlough Park, Castlebar, Co. Mayo, has been open to visitors from 29 June.

On Monday, 20 July, we will re-open NMI - Archaeology at Kildare Street, Dublin 2, and NMI - Natural History at Merrion Street, Dublin 2.
