We got our tickets for free as we were using the green hop on and off buses just ask the driver! Was really interesting and the tour guide was great, although I forget his name! Really interesting and a must see when in Dublin, we were very pleasantly surprised!

I loved my visit to the Little Museum. Great to see old photos of Dublin all donated to the museum and memorabilia of days gone by. The tour guide was very informative too.

Spent a couple of hours in the little museum today and was mesmerized by all the interesting things to discover. A compact guide through the history of Dublin and worth every penny, especially with the tour.

'Mesmerised' is a great word. We have a fantastic vision of you in the LMoD in a trance, fascinated by our 'stuff'. We are delighted that you had such a good time and reckon we are good value also. Thanks for visiting us and reviewing us so generously. More

The sweetie (candy) jar in the main tour room, is sooooo popular but doesn't often get mentioned as a star in the LMo. Delighted you enjoyed your visit and thanks for your review. More

The entry fee was free with the green bus tour and the museum gave an interesting start to our time in Dublin. It is basically a Town House with massess of pictures and memorabilia left to the museum. Some of the pictures could do with lables to say what they are. The talk by a guide was very interesting.

Thanks for reviewing and visiting us. Everything you see in the LKMoD has been donated by the people of Dublin, without which we couldn't tell you the 20th century story of Dublin. Come and see us next time you are down here as our exhibits change regularly. More

This small museum is filled with an eclectic mix of exhibits that are brought alive on tours led by one of the volunteers - Alan. He will captivate you with his stories and provide little pockets of knowledge about Dublin that will make you feel more at home in this wonderful city.

Angela D, Manager at The Little Museum of Dublin, responded to this review

At the LMoD, we love the word 'eclectic', you can throw in 'quirky' and 'fascinating' and that's how we would love to be thought of by everyone. What we do is different from most museums, dedicated as we are to telling the story of 20th century Dublin, with all its ups and downs. Thanks for the lovely review. More

We came across the Museum quite by chance, we booked onto the tour which gives a snapshot history of Dublin our guide was very informative and knowledgeable . We were advised at the end of this tour that there was a walking tour of St Stephens Green that was included in the entrance ticket. This only takes place on a... More

Thanks for reviewing us so generously. Our Green Mile tour, of St Stephen's Green on a Saturday, is a gem. Donal Fallon, the historian, is a brilliant guide, knowledgeable and entertaining. Our in house tour takes you around 20th century Dublin in approx 30 mins. We are delighted you enjoyed. Come back and see us again as our exhibits change. More

This is the newest museum in Dublin furnished purely with contributions from the people of Dublin. It is categorised by decade mostly covering the 20th Century. The guide is one of the funniest and entertaining hosts I have ever come across and should not be missed! A great experience and you are educated as well as entertained.

Thanks for your generous review. All our guides love both to entertain and inform so there is lots of laughter in the rooms! You hardly notice that you are learning stuff and given that the 20th century in Dublin was a turbulent and formative period in our fair city's history, there are lots of interesting things to take in.

What a lovely review. We are so delighted you enjoyed your visit. We do try and cater to everyone including the children. The sweeties on the first floor are a bit hit. We also have some old fashioned toys which the younger visitors just love, most of them having never experienced something that doesn't have a light on it! Going... More
