Located on Fitzgerald's Park the Cork Public Museum will give you information about Cork throughout the years including information about the war for independence and Titanic. There's also exhibits on the First World War and Irish travellers. Worth checking out, especially as it won't cost you a penny!

Much expanded in recent years. There is now much more room for displaying items of interest. Our recent history is well represented as well as our old crafts. Be sure to visit the Travellers display upstairs

This is one of those places you 'must' visit if you are in Cork. It is a marvelous place and has a wonderful view of the history of Cork.

I'd been meaning to get back out here with awhile and heard about the new exhibition 'Digging up Cork Unearthing its Medieval Past'. I decided it might be worth checking out. The exhibition featured items that had been uncovered in various excavations in Cork city. I also had a look at the WW1 replica trench. It may not be big... More

Nice museum, mostly has sporting memorabilia. I visited it as a part of walking around the city. Its definitely interesting if you are killing time around the city. There are not many museums in Cork, so I would say visit if you are close. If not, do not worry. There is not much to write home about.
