Children's Events at the National Museum
A visit to Decorative Arts & History is not just for adults - there's plenty for the kids too!
From Soldiers to Scientific Instruments, and from Eileen Gray to Albert Bender, inspire and delight children with the objects and people waiting to be discovered in the National Museum.
The Barracks Life Room gives children of all ages the opportunity to explore what life was like as a solider in the 19th & 20th centuries. Try on costumes, handle objects and explore history using computer interactives.
We also provide tailored tours and events for families, as well as an activity area in the Museum.
The My Museum programme of events is designed to encourage families to work together, in an alternative and fun way, to learn more about the National Museum of Ireland’s collections.
Every two to three weeks, a different part of the Museum’s collections is explored either through an art, drama or storytelling workshop; or through a demonstration or special guided tour.
To find out more about the times and costs of tours and workshops, check out the Calendar of Events.
