Collecting history: A tour of Academy House & Library
WhenThursday, August 22, 2019, 11:00
This Heritage Week take a tour of the Royal Irish Academy and learn about the dedicated collectors of past times who helped build up its unique Library collections.
These tours will walk you through the Georgian rooms of Academy House and its nineteenth-century Reading Room and Meeting Room. You will learn about some of the bibliophiles and scholars who spent their time collecting books and manuscripts, which are now part of the Library’s collections. Was it pure research, a Victorian pastime or a bibliophile’s obsession?
This tour has been organised as part of our Heritage Week programme. The tour will last approx. 1 hour. No individual booking required. Group bookings please contact: email@example.com / 01-6090620
