The Little Museum of Dublin is one of the most popular museums in Dublin. Located in the city centre, just a short walk from St Stephen’s Green Park, the facility offers a comprehensive overview of Dublin’s history and cultural identity…. The opportunity to learn more about the Irish capital, and the events that shaped its history and culture between 1900 and 2000!
The Little Museum of Dublin is housed in a former Georgian house, where the authenticity and natural character of Dublin is emphasized.
It is here that you will discover an incredible collection of 20th century objects, all generously donated to the museum by Dubliners wishing to share their history.
The museum then retraces the history of Dublin through many facets. Social, political and cultural dimensions… We discover the great episodes that have shaped the city: from the Easter Uprising in 1916, to the War of Independence and the Irish Civil War…
Everything is told with brilliance and pedagogy. We then plunge headlong into the testimony of the great figures of the time: Eamon de Valera, Michael Collins, James Joyce, Samuel Beckett… and we also discover the great artists who left their mark on Dublin…
And there is something for everyone ! Historical artists, as well as current musicians, who have left their mark on the city… Musicians like U2, Sinead O’Connor, or Phil Lynot. Enough to keep you up to date if you are not too familiar with Irish music and artists!
Small anecdotes, great memories, bits of life and everyday life stories… These are the things that await you by pushing the door of the Little Museum of Dublin.
But the interest of the site doesn’t stop there: the museum also runs a welcome programme called “City of a Thousand Welcomes”.
It aims to bring together foreign tourists as well as local volunteers. They all get together for coffee or tea and get to know each other better. A great idea to meet Irish people… and then go and visit the great attractions of Dublin together!
Monday to Sunday from 9.30 am to 5 pm, Thursday the museum is open from 9.30 am to 8 pm.
