The Decorative Arts and History Museum in Dublin - Soldiers and Chiefs

The museum has the permanent Soldiers and Chiefs exhibition showing the Irish at War at Home and Abroad from 1550 to the present day.

Over 1,000 objects from all over the world cover 1,700 square metres of Collins Barracks as the Soldiers & Chiefs exhibition traces Ireland's military history from 1550 into the 21st Century.

Original artefacts, such as the Stokes Tapestry, letters, replicas and interactives show how soldiering and war have affected the lives of Irish people over the centuries.

Broken down into three themes, Soldiers & Chiefs looks at Irish soldiers at home, Irish soldiers abroad, and Irish soldiers in the 21st Century.
