Dublin City Hall is an example of Georgian architecture for which Dublin is world renowned. Built between 1769 and 1779 as the Royal Exchange, it was purchased by Dublin Corporation in 1851.

The story of the capital exhibition in the vaults of Dublin City Hall is a multimedia exhibition which traces the evolution of Dublin City.

Treasures of the city such as the great sword and mace of Dublin and the Lord Mayor's chains come together with video, medieval manuscripts, interactive computer displays and period costumes, to tell the story of the capital city.

The exhibition takes just one hour and tells over 1000 years of Dublin City.
