Really enjoyed my time here. The guide, Andrew, was excellent. Kept things both informative and humorous. One of the best museums I’ve been to in Dublin. The promise Dublin’s history in 29 minutes and I was having so much fun that I could have taken double (or triple!) that amount.
This little museum is well worth a visit if you are interested in the history of Dublin. It can be free (save 8 euro each) if you also have a hop on hop off bus ticket. Get a free admission coupon from the hop on hop off bus driver when you get off at stop 12 (right across from the museum). Plan about an hour and go on the guided tour included in the admission. Joan is a very cheery tour guide. You might be lucky enough to go on tour with her. There is also a quaint lunch cafe below the museum. They have great soups and also offer 10% off the food cost with a museum ticket. Cliff & Judy Stead.
I love this Little Museum. I have visited it twice, each time as good as the other. The staff are super friendly and really informative. It is in a 3 story house just on Stephens Green. The tour takes place on the second floor lasts in and around 30 minutes and takes you right through the main historical points of 20th century Ireland. And there are loads of very interesting social and political artifacts to look at. The ground floor and the third floor are self guided. On the ground floor you will find an installation exhibition that you can wander around, check their website for what is on. On the top floor you have the old office of the editor of the Irish times and then a room all about U2. The U2 room seems totally random, but embrace it... and read the quotes and factoids on the walls. really interesting stuff. If you are lucky your tour guide is sure to sing a song or two.
Unique small museum. The museum had a temporary exhibit on feminism and was very interesting. The guided tour was energetic and knowledgeable. BCC were filming while we were visiting, however, after a small delay we were able to go to the third floor and see the collection of U2 memorabilia. This museum focuses on social and cultural history and majority of the items in the exhibit had been donated. I will definitely recommend this museum to visit, it was one of the best I visited while in Dublin.
Most interesting and enjoyable museum we visited. Staff were really friendly and knowledgeable. The guided tour was fascinating and funny with lots of history and quirky facts. The guide connected with the group who were multinational and included children. She wasn't just going through a script but was able to answer questions too. If you like social history this is a must. The tour lasts about an hour but you can stay after to see the rest of the house.
