Glasnevin Cemetery Museum opened in 2010.The cemetery is the largest in Ireland. Opened in 1832 to establish a place where people of all religions could bury their dead with dignity, the cemetery has grown to become a national monument and vital part of the Irish Heritage story. The exhibitions seek to show the social, historical, political and artistic development of modern Ireland through the lives of the generations buried in Ireland's Necropolis.
