What the critics say

"One of my favourite attractions is the Little Museum of Dublin, a gem of a place housed in a beautiful Georgian townhouse on the north side of St Stephen’s Green, and filled with material and items, which tell a vivid story of twentieth-century Dublin. This is history at its most captivating and human." – Sunday Telegraph

"Go to its exemplary Little Museum and you get a neat tot of Dublin’s élan. Even the captions are both captivating and captious. Tradition is there all right, and so is mischief."– The Guardian

"Idiosyncratic and endearing, the Little Museum of Dublin is an unexpected treat. A portrait of the city as detailed and sweeping as Ulysses, only much, much more accessible." – GQ

"To get a crash course on all things Dublin, start your day with a visit to the the Little Museum of Dublin. This charming and chock-full museum is relatively new to the scene but it'll teach all you ever wanted to know about the city's recent history – from Queen Victoria's visit in 1900 to the meteoric rise of local band U2. You’ll get a solid background on 20th-century Dublin, as well as an insight into the quirks and pop culture unseen beyond local borders." – Condé Nast Traveller

"The Little Museum of Dublin is everything that’s good about Dublin in microcosm. It’s a scene of meticulously organised chaos. Like the city itself, it houses within its confines the relics of bygone eras. And just like Dublin, it oozes a sense of nascent creativity, of something exciting coming into being." – Irish Times 

"Ireland's No.1 museum is a small non-profit housed in a Georgian building overlooking Dublin's Stephen's Green. That's according to TripAdvisor, which has just named the Little Museum of Dublin as Ireland's top museum in its Travellers' Choice Awards." – Irish Independent

"The Little Museum tells the tale of Dublin and Irish history in a wonderfully sardonic, fun-filled way... The hour felt like 15 minutes as it’s an hour filled with humour, quirkiness, song and a healthy dose of Irish cynicism. I can’t recommend it enough." – Irish Examiner
