National Museum ��� Decorative Arts and History

East Ireland | County Dublin

National Museum Of Ireland – Decorative Arts & History is located in a historic military building of Collins Barracks, in the centre of Dublin City. This massive complex was commissioned in 1700 and served as military barracks until the 1990s, being the oldest inhabited barracks in Europe. Since 1997 it became home of National Museum of Ireland – Decorative Arts & History. Three floors with a total area of 2500 square meters were dedicated for displaying modern and innovative galleries of the museum. The collection contains a wide range of objects, including weaponry, furniture, Irish dress, silver, ceramics and glassware. Some of the exhibitions are permanent but there are also many temporary presentations, so any time you pay a visit, you will find something new. Among the most interesting items are the Fonthill Vase (Chinese porcelain made about 1300AD), the William Smith O'Brien Gold Cup, the Lord Chancellor's Mace and the Eileen Grey chrome table. Admission to the museum is free of charge.
