The Irish Times called it, “Dublin’s best museum experience.” With three floors of exhibition space and over 5,000 artifacts donated by the public, the Little Museum shows visitors the history of Dublin in the 20th Century. A first edition of James Joyce’s Ulysses and photographs on tenement life are among the “eclectic range of objects” here. Guided tours are available and tickets can be purchased in advance online.
