The amazing story of Dublin in 29 minutes the poster told us. This is unlike most museums in as much as it cost us €10 each to get in (€8 admission plus a €2 suggested donation) and rather than the usual often dour interior this is a beautiful home impeccably decorated. We spent our 29 minutes with June a very... More

It was a positive surprise to visit this little museum. Having lived in Dublin for over four years, I learnt some interesting facts about the history of Dublin. The museum guide was also great and engaging. Worth a visit if you want some facts without needing a full scale museum.

We purchased a 3 day freedom pass with Go Dublin green bus hop on/off service and you get to visit for free with this pass (€7 per adult normally) tours run every hour for 30/40 mins per tour but if you arrive before you can visit the cafe downstairs, the ground floor exhibition and the upper floors (u2 on that...

If you want a clear and concise history of Dublin during the 20th Century, this is the place to come! June was a fantastic tour guide, bringing a wonderful levity to the tour to help us learn all the eccentricities and the complex history of Dublin and Ireland! It's also fantastic if you don't have a ton of time! Glad... More

Visited here in 2012 - was a very rainy day and the people running the museum were desperate to get people in as it was new. I got in for half price

Our guide Jean gave us an insight into Dublins history. So interesting but at the same time Irelands history is very confusing too - Jean broke it down and explained the main characters with which this museum is built around - also loved the U2 room

Me and my partner had a quick stop here to have a look because we had free tickets from our bus tour. As they were free tickets we were not expecting anything special but to my surprise we both really enjoyed the museum. The guide was great and very informative about the history of dublin. - Not only this but... More

We loved this little museum. The three floors are brimming with artifacts, but what really made it wonderful was the docent, June. She enlivened the photos and documents hanging on the walls. I highly recommend stopping in, so worth the time. The cafe on the bottom floor is also so worth popping in for breakfast, lunch or a cup of... More
