The archaeology museum is affiliated to the National Museum of Ireland, and thus run with the same opening times and free admission, just as the other three museums. This means that the museum is closed on Mondays, open from 10.00-17.00 from Tuesday-Saturday and from 14.00-17.00 on Sundays. Inside the Archaeology museum you can see several interesting exhibitions presented, such as: The Treasury, Ór – Ireland’s Gold, Prehistoric Ireland, Kingship and Sacrifice, Viking Ireland, Medieval Ireland 1150 – 1550, Ancient Egypt, Ceramics and Glass from Ancient Cyprus and Life and Death in the Roman World. These are the permanent exhibitions and of course temporary exhibitions are brought to the archaeology museum from time to time.
The museum is located next to the Leinster House in the governmental area, and thus it is very close to the Natural History Museum as well.
