Dublinia is the name given to a heritage centre located in the old St Michael's Church dating from the 12th Century. It is embedded in the Synod Hall of Christ Church Cathedral. The exhibition of the Center covers the formative period of Dublin's history from the arrival of the Anglo-Normans in 1170 to the closure of the monasteries in the 1540's.There are many exhibits here which include video's, model's and reconstruction's and in the ground floor a large-scale model of Dublin around 1500. Perhaps people dont know that until the restoration of Christ Church , It and the St Michael's Church were two unrelated buildings. Street designed the Synod Hall around the original church tower all that remains of the original St Michael's Church.
