  • A little gem of a museum nestled between Phoenix Park and the airport. Small jewels of works inside and exhibitions always interesting and attractive. If you are lucky you can by booking attend the tea ceremony

  • Here is a departmental museum, its access is free, in addition to the permanent background of ethnic works, there are superb exhibitions, that of Yves Saint Laurent was magnificent !!!

  • A very small collection but there are fine pieces here, and well displayed, in that great rarity, a graceful and attractive modern building, nicely situated on a lake/pond (water filthy though). Eccentric zoo and charming palm house next door. Paid admission.
  • Small but well curated, it's probably an hour visit at the most. Just beside the airport so perfect way to kill a bit of time before our flight. There's not an overload of objects so I felt able to appreciate what was there better. The signage is in French but there are cards with English descriptions in each room. Beautiful building too.
