An exhibition of geological material from the national collection was on display during 1989 at the National Museum premises in Merrion Row. Prior to that period, the exhibition travelled to a number of exhibition centres throughout the country.
A more extensive and representative exhibition is currently being prepared which will incorporate material which has not been seen publicly since the 1950s. It is planned that this exhibition will open later this year and will continue during 1991 as part of the Dublin City of Culture programme.
The policy of the museum is to mount such exhibitions while transferring the full collection from Daingean to accommodation at Beggars Bush which is being specially adapted and where scholars can have access to the collection in due course.
