Described by the Lonely Planet as "not just the best museum in Ireland, but one of the best in Europe", this houses some wonderful treasures from around Europe, Africa, the Middle East, and Asia. From ancient manuscripts, paintings, drawings, rare books and decorative artifacts, this exhibition will excite you with samples of the richness of human creative expression from about 2700 B.C. to the present day. It must be high on the must-see list for the culturally curious visitor to the city.
Admission is free.
