National Museum of Ireland open to visitors from 1 December

NMI - Decorative Arts & History at Collins Barracks, Dublin 7

The National Museum of Ireland is delighted to welcome visitors back to three Museum sites from Tuesday, 1 December.

Visitors can now enjoy more than 40 permanent and temporary exhibitions on display across the three Museums at the NMI - Decorative Arts & History, Collins Barracks, Dublin 7; the NMI - Country Life, Turlough Park, Co. Mayo; and the NMI - Archaeology, Kildare Street, Dublin 2.

Admission to all exhibition galleries is free of charge.

Some newer exhibitions to enjoy this winter include Glendalough: Power, Prayer and Pilgrimage at the NMI - Archaeology, and Crown beoir at the NMI - Country Life. 

The Glendalough exhibition explores the stories and objects associated with one of Ireland's best known monastic sites, while Crown beoir is a photographic exhibition looking at hair and identity in Traveller culture.

Visitors will need to book a free ticket for entry to the NMI - Archaeology to facilitate a safe and enjoyable visit. There is a queueing system in place for the NMI - Decorative Arts & History and the NMI - Country Life, based on safe capacity for the galleries at these sites.

Brambles cafe is open once again at the NMI - Country Life and visitors to all three Museums can browse a unique range of Irish crafts, books and gifts in the Museum Shops.

The NMI - Natural History is closed temporarily to facilitate ongoing works.
