I booked tickets for Easter Sunday for the "Stand Up History" Tour and it was fantastic - 1000 years of Dublin History in 45 minutes. Our guide Abie was hilarious and was able to crack jokes that everyone on the tour (Irish, Americans, Germans, French, etc) could relate to. I was shocked the museum was really only 2 rooms but...

Potted and quirky history of Dublin. Loads of unique and different piece of history and all in a small space. Friendly and efficient staff.

We were told this was a "must see" attraction in Dublin, so maybe we expected too much. Dublin has a rich story to be told but you won't find it here. The staff is outstanding but the content is very limited.

We had a great tour guide who was really interactive and despite only being there for such a short about of time I felt like we learnt a fair bit more than we... More

The tour guide was very funny, yet very knowledgeable. His history lesson of Ireland from the 1950s to 2000s were a great way to get to know Ireland and its history within 30 minutes. This museum is small, but has the important info that a museum should have.

We found our selves visiting the museum by chance and so glad we did. The information gained about life in Dublin and the political developments over the years that have forged today's Dublin & Ireland was delivered with humour but always informative. Well done to the Little Museum that thinks BIG

This is setup in two different guides - one is self-guided and the other is escorted. Although there are some interesting artifacts throughout the museum, I would not recommend this museum - especially with kids. I don't want to disclose too much that would get me in trouble (being a spoiler), but the escorted tour is more storytelling - and... More
