The amazing thing about what I have encountered with many of the museums in Dublin, are that they are able to pack small spaces with all the information you would ever need, and find a way to make it count.
I took my partner to Dublin for his birthday and he very much enjoys "how it's made" style / interactive museums.... and whiskey.

Definitely one of the best (and most unique) museums I have ever been to - set within a gorgeous Georgian building and decorated beautifully (with all artefacts donated by Dubliners over the years).
If you love learning about a place but have little patience for large museums and staid history then this is the place for you.

Whereas the other 2 mentioned museums are very high tech, almost breath taking, this one is decidedly low tech and begun on a shoestring budget.

Always a friendly welcome and the smaller scale of the building in comparison to the large museums & galleries gives it a lovely relaxed ambience - perfect for quiet contemplation.

As with all of Ireland's national museums, entry is free, but a donation is really deserved because of the excellent and informative exhibitions they have here.
The National Museum of Ireland is a fantastic contributor to Irish culture and tourism and all the museums are all worth visiting if you are looking to discover more about Dublin and Ireland.
