Community Engagement

Welcome to the Community Engagement programme at the Museum of Childhood Ireland, we’re thrilled you stopped by.

Here you will find stories, memories and interviews shared by our friends and followers about all things childhood, and growing up in Ireland. 

We at the Museum feel that the community should be at the heart of everything that we do – we want to create a space that reflects the shared (and varied) lived experience of everyone connected to our Emerald Isle – no matter where you are from or where you are now.

We would love to hear from you, for stories long and short, for memories past and present, adults and children alike!

At intervals, we will run more themed programming – such as Hallowe’en in October or Christmas in December – but this is just a guide. We want to hear and share your stories of anything you can think of – we’re excited to be here, and we’re excited to be hearing!

You can send us your stories, memories, anecdotes, pictures, thoughts or videos at any time – on our Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, or by email to

Want to share your story but remain anonymous too? That is more than okay! We’re just here to create a communal space where we can all talk about the wonderful topic that is childhood.

We look forward to hearing from you!
