The People's Museum
The Little Museum of Dublin13
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.
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.
