National Museum of Ireland | Country Life
The award-winning Museum of Country Life is home to the National Folklife Collection. Interactive displays and screens, actual video footage of traditions we are fast losing are featured alongside handcrafted harvest knots, wickerwork, spinning wheels and boats, clothing and artefacts from the islands and hand operated machinery our grandparents used. Level A: Introduction The entrance level (Level A) in the modern Museum Galleries gives an introduction to the National Museum's Folklife Collection and to the main themes of the other galleries. It includes the traditional costume of the Aran Islanders, folklore objects, and black and white photographs depicting the reality of people working close to the land and sea.
