The Little Museum of Dublin has been named as “Dublin's best museum experience” by the Irish Times, and welcomes families, with free admission for children under 3 years of age.
The large and varied collection, which is mainly made up of items donated by local people and organisations, includes photographs, advertising, art, postcards, plus a number of other objects that reflect the political, social and cultural life in Dublin between 1900 and 2000. They can be anything from a poster for a famous concert, or a ticket to a well known sporting event, but they all shine a light on some aspect of life in Dublin.
Families are welcome at the museum and they have worksheets suitable for kids of all ages to help them get more out of their visit. A guided tour is given every hour, and they are one of the best ways to see all that the museum has to offer. The tour guides are very friendly and happy to give special attention to the kids, so you can encourage them to ask questions about anything they see.
The tour guides will also be happy to point out the interactive artefacts that are available for the kids to handle, plus JK Rowling's lectern, and the old Dublin school desk, where they can sit and have their picture taken.
