Primary schools

Here at MoLI, we are committed to youth creativity and providing a safe, creative and enjoyable environment, where children of all abilities can engage with the museum, both in- person and online.

‘Shut your eyes and see’ is our primary school learning programme for 3rd – 6th class. The workshop and tour are free and take place in MoLI on St Stephen’s Green. They begin at 10.15am and finish at 12pm on Wednesdays during term time. Our max capacity for school groups is 30. Book now.

If you can’t visit us, we can visit you online with MoLI in the Classroom, in partnership with AerCap! Every Thursday during term time we run MoLI in the Classroom: a free, interactive, virtual, 40 to 50-minute workshop for 3rd to 6th class primary school students from across Ireland. Book using the link above.

All programmes are delivered in line with our MoLI Child Safeguarding Statement and our Online Safeguarding Statement.


We offer Bright Sparks Creative Bursts on our website – writing and creativity prompts and games for young people to do at home or in the classroom by award-winning children’s writer Sarah Webb.
