The Little Museum of Dublin is a charity governed by an unpaid board of directors. Our collection was created by the people of Dublin, and it would not have been possible to open the museum without their support.
The museum patrons include the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, the Matheson Foundation, the Ireland Funds, and Dublin City Council, which owns the building that houses the museum.
It was a grant of €40,000 from Fáilte Ireland and the provision of space within 15 St Stephen's Green that enabled the museum to get off the ground, and the museum was opened by the then-Lord Mayor of Dublin, Councillor Andrew Montague, in 2011.
We enjoy the support of other brilliant supporters in government as well as the worlds of business and philanthropy. We salute all of our sponsors:
Aer Lingus; Alchemy Juice Co; Allianz Insurance; Carmen; Davy Group; Department of Arts, Heritage & Gaeltacht; Diageo; Direct Medical; Dublin City Council; Dublin Sightseeing; Failte Ireland; Google AdWords; Hatch & Sons; Heritage Council; Irish Aviation Authority; Japan Foundation; KPMG; LUAS Cross City; New Ireland Assurance; Matheson Foundation; Santa Rita; The Ireland Funds; The Irish Times; The Merrion Hotel; The Porterhouse Brewing Company; The Times and The Sunday Times; TV3.
Thank you for giving Dublin the museum it deserves.
