Irish Museum of Modern Art

The Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA) is Ireland's leading museum for modern and contemporary art. It is located to the west of the city center, near Heuston Station.

The museum was opened in 1991 and is housed in a 17th-century building that used to be the Royal Hospital. It was built between 1680 and 1687 by Sir William Robinson and restored in the 1980s. The Great Hall and the chapel are just two of the many interesting architectural features of this classical French-Dutch-style building. It makes for an interesting space to exhibit art, arranged around a courtyard, with long corridors and small rooms leading off of them the house creates an unusual layout for a museum.

Apart from showing quite a large number of exhibitions the museum also has a focus on running programs for artists, the stables of the Royal Hospital have been converted into artists' studios. IMMA's award winning Education and Community Department and a national program designed to exhibit works from its collection in other venues show that the institution is dedicated to making art accessible. A regular series of talks and lectures give audiences a chance to meet artists and curators and debate with them.

The IMMA is wheelchair accessible and has a café and a bookstore. The premises also include a beautiful formal garden and a medieval burial ground.

Entry is free and there are free guided tours all year round.
