Ireland's leading national institution for the collection and presentation of modern and contemporary art

Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA) - Royal Hospital Kilmainham

The Irish Museum of Modern Art is housed in the Royal Hospital Kilmainham, the finest 17th-century building in Ireland. The style is based on Les Invalides in Paris with a formal facade and a large elegant courtyard. The Royal Hospital in Chelsea was completed two years later and also contains many similarities in style.

The Royal Hospital Kilmainham was restored by the Government in 1984 and opened as the Irish Museum of Modern Art in May 1991. The Irish Museum of Modern Art is Ireland's leading national institution for the collection and presentation of modern and contemporary art and presents a wide variety of art in a dynamic programme of exhibitions.

There is also a year round heritage exhibition giving information on the history of the Royal Hospital Kilmainham together with an exhibition on the involvement of the Royal Dublin Fusiliers in Gallipoli during the First World War.
