Written in her inimitable and totally accessible style, Muriel explores the museums of Dublin - and there are almost forty of them - to find out all sorts of fascinating things from times past. She includes them all, from the popular to the lesser known.

She reminisces among the old gramophone sets at Ye Olde Hurdy-Gurdy Museum of Vintage Radio and goes along to the latest Imaginosity, a children's interactive museum which is founded on technology and state of the art discovery techniques. She delves into the world of banking, some 200 years of it, and learns about the development of traditional Irish Games at the GAA's Croke Park. Muriel's research found her looking at puppets and wax models, trams and toys, photographs and prints, literature and heraldry, model railways and Masonry, as well as Georgian and Jewish history.

The museums of Dublin captivated her and will enthrall every reader, whether a visitor to or resident of the Irish capital.
