Celebrate the opening of our new extension with us!

Celebrate our next step with military vehicles and re-enactments

The IMWM is getting even bigger!

Anyone who has visited us before will know we have masses of militaria on show, but might not realise we had even more behind the scenes with no space to show it. With the opening of our new 9,000-sq-ft extension, we will soon be able to display even more fascinating artefacts and memorabilia from world conflicts.

The extension is opening soon, and we want you to join us to celebrate! Over the weekend of Saturday 13 and Sunday 14 May the Irish Military War Museum has a packed programme of events to entertain young and old. There will be a Military Vehicle Show, where enthusiastic collectors will be on hand to explain the history of their machines, plus re-enactments of military battles to really bring history to life. Battles begins at 4pm each day. There will also be a collection of stalls for you to browse and buy from, selling a variety of wares.

So whether you’ve visited before, or if you’ve been meaning to drop in, this would be a perfect time to call. The events take place on 13 & 14 May from 10am to 5pm. Usual entry prices apply – €10 per adult or €25 for a family of four. You can buy admission tickets here.
