This is a fairly small but excellent museum based on a private collection. There is a fee to enter but not a big one and it’s worth it. Take your time looking around and do open the drawers as there are exhibits in them. The...More

We did an ad hoc walking around the town and came across the museum. Small but interesting displays. Worth going in, but would not make a special trip to view

Watch for exhibitions and kids friendly activities that they announce on their facebook page. Gift shop has really elegant souvenirs. They also sell Monopoly Limerick edition :)

This is a small museum. It only took us about an hour to go through. There was a kids booklet for my 10 year old kid to complete. Staff was friendly. Overall, we enjoyed it.
