Mission Statement The Irish Museums Trust, founded in 1978, is a non-profit charitable body dedicated to supporting the development and improvement of the Irish museum sector on the island of Ireland.

Annual Grants Scheme

The Irish Museums Trust (IMT) recently introduced a small grant scheme comprising five grants up to a maximum of €1,000 each, to be awarded twice a year.

The grants are aimed at those working in the museum sector in Ireland and students involved in researching a subject, at research masters or doctoral level, relevant to the understanding, management or development of museums across the island. Another objective of the scheme is to enhance networking and peer-to-peer exchanges of knowledge and mutual support, nationally or internationally, among those working in Irish museums.
