On Saturday, 30 January 1864, the Earl of Carlisle officially opened the National Gallery of Ireland on Merrion Square. This display celebrated the development of the Gallery from 1864 to the present day, and focussed on the important contribution of patrons and benefactors to the development of a national collection.

Comprising over 100 items from the Gallery Archives, Library and Print Room collections, the exhibition featured historical records, registers, publications, photographs, correspondence and architectural plans that are an integral part of the history of this national cultural institution.
