To celebrate 20 years of being in Temple Bar, the Tiernan MacBride library is briefly transforming into a pop-up Museum, full of interesting and unusual artefacts from the collections of the IFI Irish Film Archive. Archive staff will be on hand to explain the stories behind the objects, their choices for display and there will be tours of the Archive vaults to give you a real understanding of what goes on behind the scenes and how we look after Ireland’s national film collection.
In addition to this, the Archive’s Oscar and Emmy statuettes (the Oscar was donated by a former Irish winner, Set Designer Josie MacAvin) will go on permanent display.
The Pop Up Museum will be open all day in the Tiernan MacBride Library at the IFI; no tickets required.
The Archive Tours will start at set times (11.00 and 15.30) on Thursday, September 13th and Friday, 14th. They are on a first come first served basis, no need to book.
