The National Maritime Museum of Ireland
The National Maritime Institute of Ireland was founded in 1941. Our mission is to foster an appreciation of our maritime heritage. To that end we operate the museum, host lectures, issue newsletters and a journal, maintain a library, host and support commemorations, promote and conduct research.

Our Board Members
On 28th January 2023, the Institute held a large “Future Search” event in the Museum, to which all members were invited, and which was also attended by a cross-section of volunteers, CE Scheme employees, and other stakeholders.
The aim was to stand back from our current and shorter-term challenges and, by working together as equal stakeholders, creatively imagine possible futures for the Institute and Museum and what may be needed to secure their longer-term future.
There were no presentations, talks or lectures, and the entire morning was devoted to sharing ideas and thinking.
The Future Search report will be posted here when it’s finalised.
