We provide some of our collection for use in film, television, theatre, drama and events. Our phones and other electronics have been used in various productions in the Abbey Theatre, RTE and TV3 among others over the last number of years.
If you are looking for a specific phone or electronic item and are struggling to find what you need, we have access to a wide variety for hire to reflect all styles and eras.
The fee we recieve from hiring the props and used to further the developent of the museum with the purchase of rare older models and the facilitation of maintaing the lead role in education, research pertaining to the collections in the museum and their contexts.
Fees for prop rental are supplied on request. We have in the past waved our fees or part of the fees in exchange for listing in the rolling credits of the production. We only wave fees for certain types of productions. If this is something you wish to discuss please get in touch.

On-Set Technical Support
We have engineers when possible to be on-set as and when required. They have a wide ranging knowledge of all things electronic and how to make them do the things you want them to when you want them to. We are always happy to provide general advice in terms of what props would suit a specific situation and technical advice on how to implement those props.
The Museum seeks to make the collection accessible through an intensive programme of short and long term loans to qualified museums, education, and research institutions for research, exhibition, replication, and educational programs in Ireland. We prefer to lend to displays which will meet the intent of our mission statement ‘to inspire a passion for 'mobile phone technology' and which support the aims of our strategic plan. All loans from the Museum Collections are subject to our standard conditions of loan.
