Why locals love it

This museum tells Dublin's story through the eye's of Dubliners with objects and curios donated for display by members of the public. It takes a warts and all look at the development of modern Dublin by not shying away from hard issues.

Why you should visit it

It is quite unlike traditional museums with not a hint of stuffiness about it. There are new exhibits added on a rolling basis which keeps the museum fresh. The museum is run independently of the National Museum structure and fully deserves support.

Special tip

Take a break in the wonderful Hatch & Sons cafe downstairs after your visit and get 10% off your bill when you show your museum entry receipt.

This is one of the best museums I've ever been to. It's a great place to go to learn the basics on Irish history, but it's the guides that make it such a great experience!

If I had to rank my favourite Dublin sights this would be No. 1. Great tour through the museum. So much to see and so many interesting stories told. I also like museum shops and although they only had a few things they were very well chosen.
