Following on from the recent successful launch of its new strategic plan, the Local Authority Museums Network (LAMN), of which Carlow County Museum is a member, marked #internationalmuseumsday2022 with their website, www.lamn.ie, going live in May.
The website promotes the aims and objectives of the network as well as encouraging people to visit the LAMN museums that display objects of local, national and international importance.
The website brings together the collective voice of the LAMN museums that are based in all four provinces. All of the Museums have stories of our rich history to tell and provide unique insights into some of the major events that shape our island and international affairs.
The museums are opened all year round, designated by the National Museum of Ireland to display archaeological finds, are part of the Museums Standards Programme for Ireland (MSPI) coordinated by the Heritage Council, and have an imaginative range of exhibitions and events.
All of the LAMN museums are operated by local authorities that play a vital and proactive role in promoting and preserving culture and heritage, ensuring the best possible quality of life for their communities. The development of the website has been grant aided under the Regional Museum Exhibitions Scheme 2021 by the Department of Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sports and Media.
