€600,000 for ‘Little Museum’
The Minister for Tourism has announced a funding allocation of €600,000 to the Little Museum of Dublin to complete the curation and interpretation phase of its redevelopment project.
The Little Museum of Dublin is commencing a capital project in 2024, which is part-funded by the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sports and Media, along with Fáilte Ireland. The project involves building upgrades to improve the visitor experience and to provide universal access throughout the public spaces within the building.
The museum has also secured funding from Fáilte Ireland to undertake capital works to the building and is working with distinguished conservation architects to realise this project.
Minister Martin said:
“The redevelopment and expansion at the Little Museum of Dublin is a tremendous project that will greatly enhance the offering at this important cultural facility in Dublin’s City Centre. The Little Museum, through its presentations and programmes, provides engaging insights in relation to the city and people of Dublin.”
The museum will feature new elements including a space for a dedicated youth education centre, a visitor welcome reception and upgraded exhibitions about Dublin.
