In celebrating the European Babywearing Week, we have organised a museum tour for babywearing parents at the Little Museum of Dublin.
The Little Museum of Dublin tells the story of Ireland’s capital city in the 20th Century.
This new non-profit museum was formally opened by the Lord Mayor of Dublin, Councillor Andrew Montague, in October 2011. The collection boasts over 5000 artefacts, reflecting the generosity of ordinary Dubliners, as well as many cultural institutions and local luminaries.
The social, cultural and political history of Dublin is chronicled in the Little Museum. There are simple artefacts that encourage contemplation of the past, alongside items related to famous visitors such as President John F Kennedy, Marlene Dietrich and Muhammad Ali.
The museum occupies the first floor of a fine Georgian townhouse, 15 St Stephen's Green, near the corner of Dawson Street.
The museum has worksheets available at the museum for children of all ages that can help you get more out of your visit. Ask any staff for a worksheet and they will be happy to oblige.
Feel free to let your children ask our guides questions about the museum artefacts, the museum is always happy to encourage an interest in the history of the city.
There are some interactive artefacts in the museum, feel free to let your children handle these and ask a tour guide to point them out to you. You can also take a picture of your child in our old Dublin school desk, or making a speech from JFK's lectern. The more they get involved, the more they learn.
