Opened in 1832, Glasnevin Cemetery Museum offers exciting and engaging education programmes and activities for students of all ages. Students and teachers can explore a variety of key issues and personalities from Irish history.

The museum and its educational activities explore the diversity of Irish life since 1800 through the stories of the famous (and not so famous!) people who are buried there. Witness daily re-enactments of key moments in Ireland’s past, and learn about the men and women who shaped a nation and see Ireland’s history carved in stone!

Opened in 2016, EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum takes students and teachers on a journey of discovery in the world’s first fully digital museum. The museum has 20 interactive galleries and explores global Irish history and identity from many angles – whether your students are interested in politics, science, art and design, music, engineering or sport.

With ties to the schools curriculums, your students will learn something new, and have loads of fun – all at the same time! Shortlisted for European Museum of the Year 2018.
