I absolutely loved IMMA. I went on a Tuesday by chance, which meant the exhibitions were free. The two visiting exhibitions were superb and the semi-permanent exhibition - Lucian Freud - was also solid. Once you've finished wandering the exhibition, take a stroll in the...More

Went with my conservative family of 5 and we were amazed at what some call art now days. The menstruating woman and the children like drawings of killing was a little over the top.

I enjoyed it. It's great if you see something different than what is described on the plaques. It is not for children as some of the art is more for the adult eye.

I don't know, maybe I don't understand modern art but I definitely was not a fan of this museum. It gave me the heebie jeebies of anything. My friend and I stumbled across this museum by accident after taking a taxi to see Gilmainham Gaol....More
