This small museum is packed with interest and an excellent way to learn Irish history or remind yourself of it! The staff are very knowledgable and welcoming. The exhibits are quirky, original and deeply moving in many cases. Their selection highlights parts of Irish history that are political, cultural and personal. The guided tour is an excellent way to get... More

I highly recommend this museum! From the first moment, I was greeted with friendly faces. The museum has a twenty minute "tour" through the first to rooms. The guide covers Irish history from 1900 to present? It is a quick overview. The guide stays around while you have as much time as you like to look around and ask questions.... More

Located in a stunning and beautifully restored Georgian building overlooking St. Stephens Park is a postcard of Dublin from 1900 to present, worth a 90 minute visit in between a stroll and some lunch. Included in the €7 entry you'll receive a 30 minute guided snapshot of key pieces in this donated collection be they political, literary or witty. The... More

This was an easy going, interesting and light hearted tour lasting 30 minutes. After that you can see the whole museum (which is a collection of fun posters, objects and paintings donated by dubliners). It's a great way to get to know Dublin quickly and at a good price.

Visited with my wife on a wet and windy Saturday when we were looking for something interesting and dry. We were not disappointed. 3 Floors of exhibits and paraphernalia from Dublin old and new. It was informative, interesting, and fun. Hats off to our guide Niamh who was excellent and very knowledgeable. Brilliant, and very good value as well.

A very interesting museum this, you'll see things you've never seen, things you have seen -but not like this- and just interesting stuff, it's a short tour but very sweet.

Don't skip this museum! I went on a trip back to Dublin in November 2014 on a whim as I had a few hours to spare in town waiting for an appointment and thought I'd catch up a little on my native roots. I was not disappointed! I happened to arrive when another school tour of teen girls was visiting... More

We happened to go when the Director was doing his weekly tour, and he was really friendly and knowledgeable. I already knew a fair bit about Irish history from living here for 4 years but I definitely learnt more, and it was really interesting looking at all the random bits and pieces people have donated. They also currently have a... More

We visited the Little Museum on a rainy Sunday two weeks ago. We heard about a 2 pm tour and thought we'd join. When we arrived, there was a crowd (the place is small yes, but at least 40 people were there!), all gathered in this tiny living room space (basically), with Abie, our wonderful tour guide, at the helm....

We really enjoyed learning a bit about Dublin by listening to Angela and to have the opportunity to ask her questions and to look round the exhibits. It's a fascinating place to go and I can see how it won awards. There is so much to see and time flew by!
