IMWM picks up ‘Best Commercial Float’ award

We hope you all had a very happy St Patrick’s Day last week. It was a glorious sunny day and we enjoyed taking part in both the Ardee and Drogheda parades.

What’s more…we WON the award for the Best Commercial Float in Ardee. It’s the second year running we’ve been rewarded for our efforts, so we’re really pleased everyone’s enjoying what we have to offer!

We’d like to give our thanks to the WW2 Club for their help on the day – as always, they were great.

Check out the great snaps from the Ardee parade that we shared on Facebook, thanks to This Is Ardee.

Join us to mark the 100th anniversary of WWI

WWI 100th Anniversary at the Irish Military War Museum

This weekend we are marking the 100th anniversary of WWI and we’re delighted to invite you to our celebrations.

On 2nd and 3rd August, the Irish Military War Museum will host a range of activities for all the family.

Across Saturday and Sunday, there will also be re-enactments to bring history to life. The “Trench Life, Hands On” re-enactments will give a detailed view into what daily life was like in the trenches. Discover how German, British and French soldiers coped during gas attacks and see how trenches developed over the years.

Additionally, if you’re interested in hands on history, there will be the opportunity to talk to the Military History Club about getting involved yourself.

Also this weekend, there will be dress-up and photo opportunities and perhaps even the chance to go for a spin in a half-track (subject to availability and weather conditions).

What’s more, we’re open on Monday 4th August, so you can enjoy the whole Bank Holiday weekend with the Irish Military War Museum!

Admission is €25 for a family of four, €8 for adults and €5 for kids, so come along and watch history come to life.

Opening Weekend at IMWM

The Irish Military War Museum Opening Weekend

On Friday June 6th, we opened our doors for the first time to the public. We had a great weekend and would like to thank everyone who turned up to see the museum.

For the weekend, we welcomed re-enactors who helped us bring history to live with authentic uniforms and weaponry.

At the Irish Military War Museum, we hope to make learning more interactive and fun, so we hope that this weekend helped you all to learn something new and experience some of the realities of wartime.

If you were unable to make it this weekend, we hope to see you soon!
