How your membership helps & supports

Your membership has directly supported such projects as The Three Muses, a joint educational programme for primary schools with Limerick Museum and Limerick City Gallery. It has also assisted a close fundraising relationship with Limerick Mental Health Association (LMHA), particularly in relation to the ongoing project to create a Hunt Museum in a Garden with their support.

Your membership allows us to continue to operate the museum, to produce online resources for schools and lifelong learners and prepare for a summer of activities that comply with the necessary social distancing measures.
We thank our Members and Friends for their unwavering support during such a difficult time for the creative and cultural industries.
