11 vital things we need to see included in the proposed U2 museum in Dublin

We are open to the role of the museum’s artistic director.

Reports in The Irish Times suggest that the museum will be built on Hanover Street, where the band recorded a serious library of songs.

The plans are in the final stages, but we have no idea if they’ve even considered how they’re going to fill four floors of U2 memorabilia.

We have some suggestions:

1. This tweet, along with the article giving Bono the title of one of Glamour’s Woman of the Year

2. An old, abandoned iPhone containing Songs of Innocence

Stand by this exhibit and watch the tourists gasp in horror at the buried memory.

3. This mural

Classic Dublin art. It definitely deserves a place in the museum.

7. Bono’s appearance on the 2015 Leaving Cert has to be put in some kind of bullet-proof box
