The Little Museum tells the remarkable story of the Irish capital. It was launched in 2011 with a public appeal for historic objects. The response to that appeal illustrates the generosity of the Irish people. Today there are over 5,000 artefacts in our collection.
Recently described as “Dublin's best museum experience” by the Irish Times, the Little Museum has twice been voted as the number one museum in Ireland on the TripAdvisor website.
Children attend free civics classes here every morning, we host several temporary exhibitions each year, and our greeter programme, City of a Thousand Welcomes, has been described by the Sydney Morning Herald as “the best free thing to do in Europe.”
Our goal is not to sell an ideology but simply to remember the past. If you like the sound of what we're doing, please visit the museum today.
