    To celebrate St. Patrick's Festival, why not join a tour of the Museum's fascinating collections and learn about Irish history and symbols?

    The harp is one of the most common symbols of Ireland, which we see on everyday objects such as coins, and the shamrock is synonymous with St Patrick’s Day, but did you know that there are lots of other symbols that designers and artists have used over the centuries to express Irish culture and history?

    Why not take a tour at the Museum during the St Patrick’s Festival with our Museum guides to explore the fascinating range of Irish symbols, through objects on display, from the unusual to the everyday.

    Please note this is a short tour which will last 30 minutes in total. Meeting point is Museum Reception. Booking is essential and spaces are limited.

    This is a family friendly event.
