Families and Community

MoLI – Museum of Literature Ireland, is a museum for everybody.

At MoLI, our learning activities are designed to be suitable for anyone. We welcome families and community groups to take part in creative activities and experiments inspired by our exhibitions and gardens. Our family learning programme supports families to learn together in a fun and relaxed way. Everyone’s welcome and – here’s the best news – we won’t ever ask you to keep the noise down!

Join us for workshops and full day events, or visit at any time to explore our beautiful building and tranquil gardens. Our staff will always be on hand to welcome, assist and chat with you. We provide fun and inspiring activity sheets for kids (and adults!) that engage with our site and exhibitions free of charge upon entry at reception.

Our Learning Room is a calm, welcoming space for families and other learners to create, play, and reflect. When available, the room may also be used as a Relaxed Space for families and groups with children with autism and additional needs. The Learning Room can be accessed via a member of the Visitor Experience team.

To be kept up to date with family and group learning announcements, sign up for our newsletter, bookmark our Events page or follow us on TwitterFacebook or Instagram. Email [email protected] or see our Social Guide for more on what your family or group can expect to find at MoLI.  

If you can’t make it to the museum, we have Bright Sparks Creative Bursts – writing and creativity prompts and games for children, groups and families to do at home by award-winning children’s writer and children’s book champion Sarah Webb.
