I loved that it was open til 8pm, we joined the tour, which was a half an hour gallop through two rooms and through the history of Dublin via all the many (all donated) artifacts there. I thought the tour was fantastic, the written commentary is very... More

The museum is rightly called the smallest museum of Dublin, but it far from small in enjoyment and entertainment. I recently visited with my Family, and found interesting, enlightening and enjoyable. The Guide held your attention from the very start, explaining the last 100 years plus of Dublin. Very funny in his delivery and informative in the content. My family... More

Had heard about this place, and happened on it in passing. We had about twenty minutes before the place closed, but there was nobody hurrying us and the people working there were delightful. It is really well put together, takes you on a real trip down memory lane, and I think they may change the era ever so often. We... More

We visited this as part of the hop on hop off bus tour. Fantastic! Lots of relics. And the guide (a volunteer) was wonderful - funny but knowledgeable. A must, even if you don't have much time. A true gem.

We really enjoyed the free tour at this museum, given by Kieron. The museum itself is very interesting too.

This is a great little museum. Free entry with your Green Hop on Hop Off Bus tour. Opposite St Stephens Green and well worth an hour of your time!

Myself and my mam recently visited the Little Museum. From Dublin ourselves, we found it a fab tour and still learnt a few things from our school days!! Adam was a fantastic tour guide. A volunteer, he is vibrant and full of life and passion for this attraction. Not everyone wants to be dragged around for hours listening to history.... More
