We are beyond excited to announce that the Museum is reopening from 11 May. During lockdown we’ve made some improvements to the space and the way we do things. We’re not going back to normal, we’re going back to better!
The safety and well-being of our staff and visitors is of utmost importance. Much has been done by way of meeting the COVID health and safety requirements and we are happy to announce that we have signed up to the Fáilte Ireland Safety Charter.
Here’s what to expect from your visit…
As we are operating at limited capacity, we advise advanced booking to avoid queues.
We’ve gone to great lengths to make the Museum as safe for our staff and visitors as possible, but we do have some asks of you.
Throughout your visit
All of these measures, along with others such as regular cleaning and disinfecting, are in your interest and in the interest of our staff.
*Please note that we cannot take large group bookings at this time. Schools keep an eye out for an online alternative coming soon!
