National Museum of Ireland

The National Museum of Ireland (Irish: Ard-Mhúsaem na hÉireann) is the national museum in Ireland. Located on Kildare Street, it has displays on prehistoric Ireland, including early work in gold, church treasures and objects from the Viking and medieval periods. The Kingship and Sacrifice exhibition includes well preserved bog bodies and Ralaghan Man. There are special displays of items from Egypt, Cyprus, and the Roman world, and special exhibitions are regularly mounted.

The Natural History Museum, which is part of the National Museum, is on Merrion Street in Dublin and houses specimens of animals from around the world. Its collection and Victorian appearance have not changed significantly since the early 20th century.
