The cultural institutions have welcomed visitors back this morning for the first time this year as they had been closed due to Covid-19 public health measures.
Limerick Museum located in the Priory of the former Franciscan’s Church on Henry Street and Limerick City Gallery of Art on Pery Square, opened their doors this morning.
Members of the public now have a chance to see the At Home on the Farm exhibition featuring five local farms at Limerick City Gallery of Art. The exhibition, which had been available virtually can now be seen in person, while a new exhibition, Skin Deep, by Mary Ruth Walsh will open on Friday 14 May.
Limerick Museum has a treasure trove of pieces and artefacts retracing Limerick’s history on display.
Both Limerick City Gallery of Art and Limerick Museum have free admission and no pre-booking is required.
Limerick City Gallery of Art is open Monday to Saturday from 10 am to 5 pm and Sunday from 12 pm to 5 pm.
