Marcon Heritage completed the fit-out works at the new Museum and Interpretive Centre for the Railway Preservation Society of Ireland over a 6 week period.  The new visitor centre cost £3m and has transformed the RPSI’s base into a modern tourist attraction.

Marcon was responsible for the manufacture and installation of all specialist joinery, display cases, integration of audio visual hardware, interactives and installation of graphics within the new museum space.

Working closely with leading interpretive designers GBDM, Marcon turned the carriage workshop and locomotive sheds into a fully functioning, living museum.
