This museum investigates Dublin's previous century and is located in a Georgian townhouse on the outskirts of St. Stephen's Green. The adored Little Museum offers friendliness, humor, and history. U2 and the puppets Podge and Rodge are given as much attention as James Joyce, so it's not your typical history lesson. Despite its small size, it is jam-packed with incredible exhibits and tours that bring them to life. On the well-known Saint Stephens Green, the museum is a people's museum housed in a Georgian townhouse from the 18th century.

  • The evolution is an achievement: Within the first year, it had grown to fill the entire structure, taking up three floors of a lovely townhouse on Dublin's St. Stephen's Green.

Its education program is well underway, and there are significant expansion plans for 2018 that will quadruple the museum's current size, enhance its capacity for visitors and exhibition space, and establish a permanent teaching facility for kids.
  • Venture into all that is worth seeing: Start in a typical drawing room that remembers Dublin in the 1900s (with discussions of tenements and the 1916 Easter Rising), then proceed to the memorabilia-filled current history area (including a letter from Samuel Beck). When the tour is over, you can enter the U2 room or the Editing Room, a replica of an Irish Times office from the early 20th century.
  • Take advantage of the historical perspective: The museum is undoubtedly one of Dublin's best-kept secrets because it offers a distinctive historical perspective.

Kennedy used to address the Irish government, and a variety of other uncommon and common things all tell the tale of the city.

  • The Little Museum's guided tours are a staple of the institution: The Little Museum has it all and provides a wealth of information about this wonderful city, from a brief history of the Dublin bar to a history of the city's music.

It's fantastic when elder Dubliners share their stories because there's typically a good mix of tourists from Ireland and other countries.
  • A plethora of activities are conducted: Yes, a changing exhibition on the ground floor occurs four times a year. Recently, there were two exhibitions: 'What's She Doing Here?' and 'Ireland's Fashion Radicals,' which looked at the daring designers of the 1950s.
