Due to the evolving situation of the COVID-19 virus, the Government has issued an instruction to close a number of organisations to the public including cultural institutions. As such, the four sites of the National Museum of Ireland listed below will remain closed to the public from 12 March until Sunday, 19 April inclusive. 

While it is regrettable that we must take this measure, the National Museum of Ireland's priority is to ensure it plays its role in protecting public health. 

We are currently working to develop and increase our online content for students and teachers.
