Collecting the Past/Making the Future. Marking Centenaries 2021 is a major exhibition in partnership with National Museums NI and the Nerve Centre to mark the centenaries of the partition of Ireland and the formation of Northern Ireland.
The exhibition explores the impact and legacy of events of 100 years ago, while encouraging visitors to reflect on the future, and is part of National Museums NI’s 100 Years Forward - a multi-site series of activities throughout 2021, marking the centenary of Northern Ireland.
The programme builds on previous exhibitions including Remembering 1916 and Poppies – Weeping Window, that also marked the Decade of Centenaries.
Collecting the Past/Making the Future. Marking Centenaries 2021 includes objects from key collections at National Museums NI, and from across the island, to offer a view of events up to and around the partition and the formation of Northern Ireland. The exhibition explores events over the past 100 years and shows how they are relevant to us today and how the legacy of partition has had an impact on our lives.
The exhibition is part of Making the Future, a cross border cultural heritage programme from National Museums NI, Nerve Centre, Public Record Office of Northern Ireland and Linen Hall Library, funded through the PEACE IV programme, which is managed by the Special EU Programmes Body.
This event is FREE but visitors are required to pre-book an arrival time slot. Once at the museum there is no time limit for your visit.
