Yes, it is little but the amount of information you get there is definitely on the BIG scale. Our guide, Marissa, was animated, fun and knowledgeable about the history of Dublin. She guided us through several rooms and gave us lots of information. If you are looking for a great small museum, packed with info, this is the place for you. We are glad we went and you will be too.

Our guide, Layla, was super enthusiastic, engaging, fun and informative, leading us through the history of Dublin from the Viking settlement to the modern, metropolitan city of today, telling the story though the museum’s many interesting and quirky artefacts. Would certainly recommend for all ages!

Big things can come in a small package. The little museum will offer you a brief synopsis of Irish/Dublin history and if Emma is your guide you will be highly entertained. Emma is engaged, humorous, knowledgeable and entertaining. Thank you Emma for making this experience a memorable part of our trip.

In an amazingly beautiful theatrical way, hostess Emma takes you through Dublin's history. An interactive game between visitors and Emma. Highly recommended!

A really well-thought out and thorough yet brief tour through Dublin’s history.

Emma’s tour and storytelling talents made it a special experience. She was well-prepared and very entertaining with a charming wit and an engaging smile. She brought history to life.

Really glad, I came.

We went to a talk by Trevor White on James Malton who left a set of watercolours and etchings of Dublin in the 1700s, a rare record of the city that existed at that time. Not much about Mr. Malton but Trevor nonetheless managed to extract enough information to deliver a fascinating insight to this artist and the city of the day. His talk was both informative and amusing and extremely enjoyable. The Little Museum is a gem, a kind of cheeky portal into historical aspects of Dublin. A great place to visit.
