Recently I read that a new museum opened on Henrietta Street today [27 August 207], showcasing what life used to be like in the tenements of the North Inner City. The Tenement Museum Dublin will focus on the period from 1877 to the late 1970s, telling the story of tenement dwellers through immersive drama, guided tour and audio tour. However, when I photographed Henrietta street on the first Monday of October I met some people that could not gain access and it appeared that the museum was not open to the public.
When I checked online I found the following information "Dublin City Council is staging ‘HENTOWN’, an immersive performance by ANU Productions until October 1st. ‘HENTOWN’ is set in 1963 and explores the immediate aftermath in one house on Henrietta Street, following the collapse of two tenements in Dublin City. Guided tours of the Museum will commence at the end of October."
