Travel Tip: Irish Museum of Modern Art in Dublin

The Irish Mueum of Modern Art (IMMA) is Ireland's foremost national institution for the collection and exhibition of modern and contemporary art. Not only is there a dynamic selection of local and international art but the Museum hosts other local treats like operas, and is home to an award-winning Education and Community Department.


“The Museum’s temporary exhibition programme regularly juxtaposes the work of leading, well-established figures with that of younger-generation artists to create a debate about the nature and function of art.”

The rotating temporary collections last anywhere from three to four months and several can be on view at once. The permanent collection has been carefully curated since 1990 and now comprises some 4,500 works, displayed in rotating temporary exhibitions.

The Museum is highly supportive of Arts Education and also works with a number of freelance artists who facilitate and provide input into many of the Education and Community Programs. There is even an Artists’ Residency Program.

Book a guided tour at least three weeks in advance. They are free and last about 45 minutes.

Schedule your visit around one of the Museum’s many talks, lectures, and events.
