City of the dead
The City of the Dead is an immersive exhibition in the basement of the museum. It covers the burial practices and religious beliefs, as well as the meticulous record-keeping, of the 1.5 million people buried in Glasnevin.
The Milestone Gallery
The Milestone Gallery houses a succession of special exhibitions on key historical figures, starting with Glasnevin’s founder Daniel O’Connell. It also houses “the Timeline” a 10 metre long digitally interactive table containing details of the lives and relationships of hundreds of the most famous people buried there.
The glazed Prospect Gallery
The glazed Prospect Gallery offers periodic historical exhibitions over a panoramic view of the cemetery, along with information on its marvellous array of funerary monuments and historic graves.
