About the Exhibition

Our multimedia exhibition Discover your National Library invites you behind the scenes to view amazing never-before-seen treasures from our collections.
In 2012, to celebrate Dublin City of Science, our exhibition Particles of the Past showcases a fascinating selection of science-related gems. From 17th century home remedies to early archaeological drawings to Captain Cook’s journal, this exhibition is sure to awaken your inner Einstein.  Learn how we look about these treasures in Library Lab; the conservation and preservation element of the exhibition.
