Looking for museums to visit with kids in Dublin? Delve into the history of Dublin City with all the family in this unique and quirky museum in Dublin.
The Little Museum tells the remarkable story of the Irish capital and reveals the history of a city that has undergone remarkable changes in the last 100 years, from the visit of Queen Victoria to the global success of U2.
The museum was launched in 2011 with a public appeal for historic objects and today there are over 5,000 artifacts in the collection. From writing at an old Dublin school desk or making a speech from JFK’s lectern The Little Museum of Dublin is a real treat for history hunters young and old. Experience a rich and vibrant tour of Dublin through the ages.
Family visits are welcomed with worksheets available at the museum for children of all ages to explore.
If you’re looking for something a little different for a school trip check out the I Love Dublin education programme which is free to schoolchildren courtesy of support from the Matheson Foundation. The aim of the programme is to promote a greater awareness of Dublin’s rich heritage.
