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 describes over 1000 years of Dublin City.
