The Little Museum of Dublin is a warm portrayal of Dublin through the years of the 20th century, as the Irish nation geared up to and grappled with its new-found status as a Republic. Uniquely for a museum, many of the photographs and memorabilia that constitute the exhibits themselves are sourced from local residents of Dublin who themselves lived or had immediate ancestry experiencing the years the Little Museum covers.
Something of a hidden gem of Dublin, the Little Museum is located in what first seems an ordinary, patrician Georgian house on St. Stephen’s Green. Within however exhibitions on a variety of themes, be it Dublin during wartime or the Irish capital’s portrayals in film, liven the museum regularly. Despite only having opened its doors in 2011, the Little Museum of Dublin’s inclusive approach to imparting knowledge has won it awards, with the Irish Times famously lauding the place as “Dublin’s best museum experience.”
