Come and visit Freemasons' Hall, one of Ireland's defining museums. During the late 19th century, parties and bazaars were held at the Hall, featuring members who were famous for their revolutionary thinking concerning the arts and sciences. There are six ornately beautiful rooms to view at your pleasure and a wide variety of facilities that include but are not limited to a library and meeting halls. Take a glimpse into the history of Freemasonry in Ireland and simultaneously immerse yourself in the architectural beauty of the Hall.

This weird and fascinating museum remains almost untouched since it was opened in 1857. Upon entering, one is met with three skeletons of the extinct Irish elk that lived 10,000 years ago. A variety of creatures are displayed in pickling jars, including an octopus, leeches and worms. Check out the world collection upstairs which features stuffed rhinos, pandas and two whales. Also worth seeing is the Blaschka collection of marine plants. In all, this museum provides a marvelous insight into the world of the Victorian museum-as-mausoleum.

Established in 1922, this community-run and hauntingly atmospheric library boasts a fine collection of 900,000 books and 400 periodicals, covering not only religion, but also biography, history, politics, mysticism, mythology, Irish history and culture, art and architecture. Research and reference resources are provided free, although a small annual subscription is charged to those who wish to borrow books.

The Irish Jewish Museum chronicles the history of the Jewish community in Ireland, where the first Jews settled in Ireland arriving from Spain and Portugal. The museum emphasizes the importance of education on Jewish history, culture, and heritage. There are also tours that focus on Judaism and the Holocaust. Although small - an expansion is in the works - the Irish Jewish Museum is an extremely important and interesting visiting experience for all children and adults alike.

What do you need to know about the past, future or present? From information on Dublin history to learning a foreign language, or embracing multi cultural services, this library offers much more than just books.

This museum first opened to the public in 1996. The former soldiers' chapel houses a collection of artifacts from all sectors of the printing industry in Ireland, many of which are still in full working order. Exhibits include a Linotype machine and a Wharfedale printing press, as well as a collection of newspaper pages illustrating styles of Irish typography and recalling historic events. This museum may not be to everyone's taste, but is well worth a visit if you share an interest in the media.
