Primary school teachers are very welcome to visit IMMA with their class groups any time during opening hours for a Self-Guided Visit. We would appreciate if you can email [email protected] to let us know when your group are intending to visit so that we can manage numbers safely in the gallery on the day.
IMMA can organise a 40 minute zoom call with a facilitator from our VET. Your class can explore an artwork or theme from our current exhibitions and talk to the VET facilitator about their responses and ideas. Contact [email protected] to schedule a zoom engagement, and contact [email protected] for more details.
IMMA is situated in the historic Royal Hospital Kilmainham, which includes a formal garden and large meadows, so there is plenty of space for outdoor exercise and a class picnic in the fresh air. Group leaders/ teachers may want to optimise their day out, so it is useful to know that IMMA is walking distance from both Kilmainham Gaol and the National Museum of Ireland at Collins Barracks. There is also a paid car park to the rear of the main building.
