This new non-profit museum was formally opened by the Lord Mayor of Dublin, Councillor Andrew Montague, in October 2011. The collection boasts over 400 artefacts, reflecting the generosity of ordinary Dubliners, as well as many cultural institutions and local luminaries.
The social, cultural and political history of Dublin is chronicled in the Little Museum. There are simple artefacts that encourage contemplation of the past, alongside items related to famous visitors such as President John F Kennedy, Marlene Dietrich and Muhammad Ali.
In 2011 the museum licensed the first floor of a fine Georgian townhouse, with patrons in Dublin City Council. Alongside our other patrons in Dublin Regional Authority and Fáilte Ireland, they have made this project possible, and deserve credit for bringing the museum to life.
Our goal is not to sell an ideology but simply to remember the past. We look forward to welcoming you to the museum.
