Overview
More
Limerick Museum is now based in the Franciscan Friary, Henry Street. The Limerick Museum first opened its doors in 1916 at the Carnegie Building in Pery Square and relocated four times before finding its permanent home in Henry Street. The Limerick Museum holds in storage the largest local authority collection in the country. The display in Henry Street shows only a fraction of this collection to highlight the history of Limerick City and County for thousands of years. The museum is fully accessible to all and is free.

It's kind of small museum, but it was still fun to see the artifacts that are in there and we enjoyed reading the history it shared. It won't take you long to go through it.

A few good cases with Limerick Lace and the rest was about 1916 rising. By the time we visited Limerick, it was our 4th week in Ireland and by then we have seen so many rising exhibits that it just didn't make any difference to...More

We thoroughly enjoyed the exhibition of the part Limerick played in the Easter 1916 uprising as well as the exhibition of Limerick Lace. 'Twas a splendid introduction to the area.
