Trinity College Dublin: The Book of Kells
Surrounded by books
In the center of Dublin there is a university, in the university there is a library. The library contains many treasures, and the most wonderful of all is the Book of Kells. This beautifully and elaborately decorated manuscript of the four Gospels, written by Celtic monks around the year 800, is part of Ireland’s most valuable cultural heritage.
The extraordinary book and the impressive Long Room at Trinity College Library attract a growing public each year. Together with OPERA Amsterdam we are getting started on designing The Book of Kells exhibition. Our goal is to enhance the visitor experience by optimizing the visitor flow and by creating a new state of the art exhibition. In the future visitors will be able to marvel at the beauty of the book and the library.
