Museum Visit and Mini Talks
Members of the public are welcome at a special late night opening of the GPO Museum to celebrate Culture Night.
Go on a self-guided visit to the museum that brings you on a journey through the 1916 Rising, the War of Independence & the Irish Civil War. Learn about the creation of the Irish Free State that became the Irish Republic, the partition of Northern Ireland & the Good Friday Agreement.
Explore the events of this revolutionary time from those who witnessed it from different social, political & cultural backgrounds & viewpoints. Their stories are brought to life using over 100 original artefacts, many of them personal items from people whose lives were changed forever by these events. Experience an immersive film that brings you into the heart of the action at the GPO during Easter week 1916 & enjoy one of the mini talks from our guides on this extraordinary period of Irish History.
