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.
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.
