Secondary Schools, Youthreach and Training Centres

We are delighted to partner with the Maples Group to offer free self-guided tours and in-person workshop experiences for students in the secondary cycle.

Here at MoLI, we are committed to youth creativity! Our ‘Shut Your Eyes and See!’ programme supports teachers with curricular art strands, literacy and the personal and creative development of students.

MoLI in the Classroom, in partnership with AerCap

If you can’t visit us, we can visit you online with MoLI in the Classroom, in partnership with AerCap! Every Tuesday during term time we run MoLI in the Classroom: a free, interactive, virtual, 30-40 minute workshop for 1st – 4th year secondary school students from across Ireland. Broadcast live from the museum over Zoom, the workshop is delivered directly into your classroom. Our aim is to make the workshops fun and stimulating for all young people, whatever their abilities.

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