Tours are led by IMMA staff and are free of charge. Normal exhibition fee applies for special exhibitions. 

The majority of IMMA’s exhibitions are free to enter, except for occasional special exhibitions, such as the IMMA Collection: Freud Project . Admission to all IMMA exhibitions is free for those under 18 and/or those in full time education.

Self-Guided Groups

If you choose not to avail of a free tour with one of our Visitor Engagement Team you may still visit the museum with your group, but you will need to book your group visit in with us.  Capacity for each gallery space changes for every exhibition so it is important to note that the galleries might not be able to accommodate entry to large groups. Access is therefore not guaranteed and will depend on capacity on a given day and time. Priority will always be given to groups who have booked in with us in advance.

Any self-guided groups wishing to visit IMMA Collection: Freud Project must notify IMMA in advance of your visit as entry is by time-slot only. Due to the number and delicate nature of the works and the limited circulation space of the historic building that houses the Freud Centre capacity is strictly limited and large groups cannot be accommodated in this exhibition. Please email foh@imma.ie for more details.

Group leaders and students visiting the Gallery should make themselves familiar with the IMMA’s terms and conditions .
