About this event

Join this very special tour with conservation architect Aoife Hurley, (MRIAI) Head of Operations at the National Museum of Ireland, and discover what it takes to bring the Dead Zoo back to life.

Known as the ‘Dead Zoo’, the building housing NMI - Natural History is over 165 years old, therefore overseeing and planning the care for this unique building is complex and challenging.

Places are limited. Booking required via Open House Dublin 2022. Adults 18+ only. Regretably this tour is not accessible for mobility-impaired visitors. Please note this is a architectural tour and will not incorporate the zoological collections.

Tours: 13:30 - 14:15 and 15:00 - 15:45 on Saturday 15 October 2022.

Readers are advised to check with the venue before relying on the details published here.
