Welcome to Glasnevin Cemetery Museum

Our Award Winning Museum Experience

Exhibitions at Glasnevin Cemetery Museum include 'City of the Dead', '1916 Rising Exhibition' and the 'Interactive Timeline'.

'City of the Dead' is a history of the cemetery, Glasnevin Trust and even a reconstructed exhibition of how a grave robber conducted his grim business.

The glazed 'Prospect Gallery' is currently home to the 1916 Rising Exhibition.  The space offers a panoramic view of the cemetery along with information on it's marvellous array of funeral monuments and historic graves.

The 'Milestone Gallery' is home to the interactive Timeline, a never before attempted piece of exhibition design technology. This touch screen table contains 200 life stories spanning almost 200 years and also illustrates the links between the different people who tell the story of modern Ireland.


Glasnevin Cemetery Museum has been the recipient of a number of prestigious awards since opening April 2010 such as 'Best International Museum' (London May 2011), Thea Award (California March 2011), Kenneth Hudson Awards (Portugal May 2012) to name but a few.
