Culture Night 2010
news 24 September 20105:00
Culture Night was once again a great success. We welcomed approximately 800 people at the Academy House during the evening. Library staff gave tours through the house and people were free to view our current exhibition ‘Mapping Urban Ireland’. Also on display for the night: the Cathach; old photographs of the Academy House and the Academy Museum c. 1890; photographs from the Praeger Collection, including the construction of the Titanic in Belfast; manuscripts from the Dublin Unitarian Church Collection and the beautifully illuminated Book of Hours, a 16th century manuscript.
