Give your students the ultimate hands-on learning experience with a visit to the Irish Military Museum And Park.

SCHOOLS

Our extensive collection is drawn from around the world and provides an ideal learning environment where your students can freely touch, feel and handle a vast range of wartime memorabilia, deactivated weaponry, equipment and military vehicles. They can experience the bleak and cramped conditions of a carefully recreated World War One trench and even go for a spin in an original FV432 tank!

Our guided school tours are as fascinating as they are educational. These tours bring to life the stark reality of war, the evolution of weaponry and the role military innovations have played in progressing modern technology.

We offer three bespoke packages for school tours that can be tailored to your curriculum or special interest.
