Following extensive refurbishment to the main building at the Royal Hospital, the Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA) opens its doors to the public tomorrow Saturday 12 October. IMMA reopens with a retrospective of the work of designer and architect Eileen Gray.
The Irish Museum of Modern Art was established in 1990 and was officially opened on 25 May 1991 by the then Taoiseach Charles Haughey.
RTÉ Archives looks back to that day in 1991 when the Museum first opened its doors. Charles Haughey speaks to RTÉ News reporter Michael O'Sullivan and describes the space as "one of magnificence". This report also includes an interview with Anya Von Gosseln.
RTÉ News report broadcast on 25 May, 1991.
