Dublin's new museum 14 Henrietta Street aims to showcase the long and storied history of one part of the city. Set in a Georgian townhouse, the museum tells the story of 300 years of the city's social history using the building’s shifting fortunes, from family home to courthouse and from barracks to its final incarnation as a tenement.

On the first episode of the new series, The History Show on RTÉ Radio One took an indepth look at the space. There was a report from Lorcan Clancy who spoke to tour guide Tracey Bardon and Dublin City Council Culture Company CEO Iseult Byrne. Presenter Myles Dungan then chaired a discussion on the museum and its history with Ellen Rowley, an architectural and cultural historian with UCD, and Charles Duggan, Heritage Officer for Dublin City Council.
