The Little Museum of Dublin offers a brief, informative, and entertaining introduction into the life of the 20th-century Dublin. Located inside a Georgian townhouse, the tiny museum houses a collection of over 5,000 artifacts, most of them donated or loaned by ordinary Dubliners. The little museum's big collection includes everything from old toys and antique machines to first-edition books by celebrated local authors and rare stamps with a Dublin connection. Don't miss the exhibit dedicated to John F. Kennedy's visit to the city, and an installation focused entirely on the worldwide success of local rockers from the band "U2."

  • Highly recommend stopping in. Close to other things to do. It doesn’t take up a big Chunk of the day and is very informative. If you get the DoDublin pass you can enjoy this for free.  more »

  • Great 'little' museum in the heart of Dublin. €10 for an adult and €8 for a student to take part in the '29 minute' tour of two of the rooms in the building. We had Gary as our tour guide and he was very good and weaving funny anecdotes into his overall tour notes and there was nice pieces of crowd participation too. It was a relaxed and friendly atmosphere with input from the guests welcomed which is always a nice touch. Would highly recommend for anyone looking to kill someone on a day in Dublin!
  • Very interesting for tourists and locals :) An hour is enough to see the whole thing but it's a well spent time. I loved the storytelling of our guide which was rather a mix of fun facts connected with objects collection rather than history that's known from books. You can count on Friendly, welcoming atmosphere.
