Welcome to Glasnevin Cemetery Museum

1916 Rising Centenary Exhibition

1916 Rising Centenary Exhibition

1916 - 2016

The story of Glasnevin Cemetery and those buried here is central to the history of the 1916 Rebellion. The full significance of this will be further explored in the 1916 Rising Centenary Exhibition at Glasnevin Cemetery Museum. 

The majority of those killed during the 1916 Easter Rising are buried in Glasnevin Cemetery. Here we hold the stories of those who participated in and witnessed this defining moment in Irish history, from Volunteers to Fusiliers and everyone in between. Starting this year special 1916 tours of the cemetery will take place telling the story of Easter week through the lives of those ordinary and extraordinary figures buried here. 

On Display Now! An original Proclamation of Independence of the Irish Republic produced by Christopher Brady, Michael Molloy and William O'Brien on the 23rd April 1916 at Liberty Hall in preparation for the Easter Rising. This is one of very few original proclamations to have survived to this day. 

Entry to the museum is included in all tour tickets and you can choose between the General History or Dead Interesting Tour, both taking place daily.
