The National Museum of Ireland will open a major new exhibition to mark the centenary of the 1916 Rising.

Osclóidh Ard-Mhúsaem na hÉireann mórthaispeántas nua chun ceiliúradh a dhéanamh ar chomóradh Éirí Amach na Cásca 1916.

This exciting new exhibition will explore the ideas, movements and personalities of early 20th century Ireland, the dramatic events of Easter Week, the impact it had on the city and its citizens, and the Irish nation as a whole. These themes will be explored, in both Irish and international contexts, through the stories of civilians, rebels, and the leaders of the Rising.

The Easter Week Collection of the National Museum of Ireland holds over 200 objects, including many iconic objects such as the 1916 Proclamation and the flag of the Irish Republic, as well as unique and emotive personal objects, many of which will be on display for the first time.

The National Museum of Ireland holds its collections in trust for the nation, with a unique responsibility for the rich material culture of Ireland and its peoples and the natural history of our island. Admission to all four museums is free.

Déanfar iniúchadh sa taispeántas nua beoga seo ar na smaointe, na gluaiseachtaí agus na daoine a bhí in Éirinn ag tús an 20ú haois, ar imeachtaí drámata Sheachtain na Cásca, ar an tionchar a bhí acu ar an gcathair agus ar a saoránaigh, agus ar náisiún na hÉireann trí chéile. Déanfar iniúchadh ar na téamaí sin, i gcomhthéacsanna na hÉireann agus sa chomhthéacs idirnáisiúnta, trí scéalta na saoránach, na reibiliúnach, agus cheannairí an Éirí Amach.

Tá os cionn 200 rud i mBailiúchán Sheachtain na Cásca Ard-Mhúsaem na hÉireann, ina measc go leor rudaí aitheanta cosúil le Forógra 1916 agus bratach Phoblacht na hÉireann, mar aon le rudaí sainiúla agus rudaí pearsanta a spreagann mothúcháin i ndaoine, agus beidh cuid mhaith díobh sin ar taispeáint den chéad uair riamh.

Coinníonn Ard-Mhúsaem na hÉireann a mbailiúcháin ar iontaobhas don náisiún. Tá freagracht ar leith orthu as cultúr ábhartha saibhir na hÉireann agus a pobal agus as stair nádúrtha ár n-oileáin. Tá saorchead isteach sna ceithre mhúsaem.
