Drop-In Workshop: Summer Sun Discs

Free Admission. No Booking Required.

In Early Bronze Age Ireland, people made beautiful gold discs that looked like the sun. Drop in to find out more about these precious objects and make your own shining sun disc!

To learn more about the Bronze Age in Ireland, check out the Prehistoric Ireland Exhibition and Ór - Ireland's Gold Exhibition. For more Bronze Age activities, check out our Museum at Home webpages. 

This summer, bring the family into the Learning Resource Room, first floor, at the National Museum of Ireland - Archaeology, and take part in one of our Drop-in Workshops. Each Drop-In workshop takes place for an hour and a half and has a short activity that takes between 15-30 minutes to complete, however, you are more than welcome to stay as long as you wish. Every activity is based on something on display in the Museum and are designed for anyone aged 7-107! For full details of our list of Drop-In Workshops for this summer, please see our Event Calendar.
