We had a wonderful afternoon, with friends, visiting this look back in time. It was extremely well laid out, very easy to follow the map to the various exhibitions. The staff were all well informed and made it extremely interesting.

Lovely man made site showcasing the American journey the Irish took in early settlement years . However pricing on the Web pages showed £19 cost for us 3 teenagers and 2 adults but on site £25. Now we were there just as the old season finished and the new one started the indoor museum was still closed thus the cheaper... More
