Nicknamed the ‘people’s museum’ of Dublin, this charming small museum is full of amazing treasures donated by ordinary Dubliners to make up an eclectic exhibition of a bit of everything! The Little Museum charts the cultural and social history of the city in the 20th Century, from James Joyce to U2, and you’ll discover the true story of Ireland’s capital, as seen through the eyes of locals.

Please note: The Little Museum of Dublin is currently closed for renovations.

Highlights:

  • Photography, advertising, letters and collectables from 1900 – 2000
  • Local stories and anecdotes in guided tour
  • 5,000 artefacts within this ‘civic initiative’

Things to see:

The Collection

Feel right at home in this eclectic collection of historic artefacts from 1900 - 2000. Donated by the people of Dublin, for the people of Dublin, you can walk among the first edition prints, unique photos and knick-knacks that all have something to do with Dublin and its cultural and social history. From items dating back to the Irish Rising, to a bingo card from the Butchers’ Social Union, it’s a fascinating look back at the last century.

Guided Tour

Tours run daily, on the hour every hour, so join in and learn about some of the most important pieces within the collection and how they were used over the years.
