Little Museum of Dublin – All history in 29 mins

The Little Museum is very centrally located, right at St. Stephen’s Green, so you’d think it would be on most maps and travel guides. I have a feeling it’s still fairly unknown, which is what makes it so special to me. 

Honestly, I don’t think it has the means to become the next Guinness Storehouse: the museum is very small, opened by Dublin history enthusiasts and most of the exhibits have been donated by the people of Dublin, it gives you a feeling of visiting a friend’s house. You can find out some small and quirky facts about the city of Dublin and the country as a whole, about its greatest and sometimes oddest personalities.

The top and bottom floors have self-guided exhibitions: top floor gives an insight into what some typical rooms would look like in the 19th-20th century Dublin, and there’s also a fan-stocked U2 exhibition with lots of band memorabilia. The ground floor has ever-changing exhibitions about various aspects of Dublin life, for example the long culture of pubs and how it changed in response to historical and political events.

If you go for the guided tour as well, it really lasts just under half an hour, and is centred around the main exhibition. The museum has extended working hours on Thursdays, and the guided tours at 18:00 and 19:00 are free.
