Interactive map: Reopening museums across Ireland

26 Jun 2020


The reopening of Irish museums to the public in May-June 2021 was a very positive and welcome step as we support the road to recovery. Our museums play a vital role in connecting people to their cultural heritage and identity, in public health and well-being, as learning centres, and are important drivers of our local economies.

Museums across the sector have worked extremely hard to prepare, placing the health and safety of staff and visitors as a primary concern, while also ensuring that the museum visit be a rewarding and enjoyable experience. However, in such a diverse sector it is natural that one size does not fit all and many have had to take into consideration their individual requirements and resources. 

We reached out to museums across Ireland and asked them to let us know of the reopening dates of their galleries as they are confirmed and gathered these in an interactive map. 

This resource is updated regularly and museums can continue to contribute and update the IMA via a short questionnaire on this link.
