The Hunt Museum exhibits one of Ireland’s greatest private collections of art and antiquities, dating from the Neolithic to the 20th Century, and includes works by Renoir, Picasso and Jack B. Yeats. The museum is housed in the elegant Palladian-style building designed by the Italian architect, Davis Ducart, in 1765.
Today, The Hunt Museum is a cultural and artistic centre in Limerick providing a wide range of education, heritage and culture activities including a vibrant schools programme, weekly lectures and family focused events. The Museum also has a vibrant exhibition programme which serves the local community and wider audiences. The Museum is actively engaged in maintaining the collection to a very high standard and with the assistance of the Volunteer Docents engages in regular preventative conservation.
