Rising museum plans revealed


It is hoped a museum to commemorate the 1916 Rising will be open in time to mark the centenary of the event. 

Members of the Save No 16 Moore Street committee called on the Taoiseach, Minister for Arts and Culture and Minister for Finance to support their plan to restore the building where the leaders of the Rising decided to end the rebellion.

The museum would see numbers 14 to 17 Moore Street restored to their original period condition. The second floor of the museum would hold archived material related to the Rising, while the first floor and ground floor would be the public exhibition space, including restoration of battlefield tunnels. The exhibit would include exhibits such as the Proclamation of Independence and the letter of surrender.
