Join me for a visit to the National Museum of Ireland – Archaeology. I will be your private professore, travelling in from Amsterdam, Holland specially for you. Tour by Drs Kees Kaldenbach, a professional Art History scholar with excellent teaching skills. Specialist in Fine art and Design, Architecture, Archaeology and History. VIP entry. Entry best at from 9 or 10AM.

1. Expensive option: You can hire me and I will fly in to be your own outstanding private “Professore”. At your cost, I will fly in especially for you and I will guide you after spending a hotel night. And then a very memorable museum visit or two.

2. Less expensive option: I know many first-rate art historian colleagues all over Western Europe. Therefore I know just the company/guide to arrange an excellent museum visit for you. I work very closely with these art history women and men and they are brilliant.

Excellent displays on prehistoric Ireland, with early work in gold, church treasures and objects from the Viking and medieval periods. The Kingship and Sacrifice exhibition includes well preserved bog bodies. Research has shown these were important individuals!

The Iron-Age bog bodies were preserved by the peat soil, so skin and bones and hair did not decompose and still exist. One was from a bog in Co Laois, likely to be that of a young man killed according to the rules of succession rites of kingship.

Ideally, we combine this museum with a visit to paintings in Dublin’s National Gallery.

Business card. Museum visits.

Please note, this is a high level offer. Practicalities: I live in Amsterdam, Holland and do NOT run a travel agency.  I do however provide Fabulous international museum tours.

The plan is that you contract me for one or more days as your private ‘Professore’ and offer full airline transport to that city, plus hotel accommodation in the same place you will stay. We will spend quality time together in mornings and early afternoons. We will combine this museum with the Paintings in the National Gallery, Dublin.
