Probably is not the most exciting attraction of the entire Ireland but it is an interesting museum (the best of Tralee if we considere that it's the only one). The girl at the desk was incredibly kind, asking me from where I come from. When I visited the museum there was a beautiful photo exhibition about the Co. Kerry in... More

Started with a walk through exhibit comparing County Kerry in the 50's vs the 70's- very interesting and I spent a lot of time in here. Museum also had an excellent medieval exhibit with authentic marketplace sounds and even smells. Also displays on an Irish Antarctic explorer... More

It was a very small museum. It was ok. Don't know if we'd pay a second visit but the time we went, was good enough.

The highlights of this museum for me were the exhibition of photographs from the Kennelly Archive and the recreation of the medieval Tralee street. The archive, mainly from the 50s and 60s, is a pictorial history of Kerry life that would be immediately recognisable to anyone who lived in or visited Kerry at that time. The medieval street has been... More

We decided to have a look round this museum as we had heard very good reports from other sources. We were certainly not disappointed as it gives a wonderful overview of life in the County of Kerry and the town of Tralee from the 15th Century. Very good value for money and definitely worth a visit

Beside Town Park and the tourist office. I had to leave early as I was meeting other people from our group - we shared a taxi from our hotel, the Earl of Desmond.

There was a nominal admission charge at this museum which is central to Tralee town. This is unusual but it was worth it. The sequence in which you view the displays is very well laid out and brings you from the Stone Age to the present. The biggest surprise was the spooky medieval section which had amazing figures and settings.... More

This is a great way to spend a wet morning/afternoon in Tralee. The museum is packed full of information and archives. I was very pleasantly surprised and my only regret was I should have visited sooner.

This is one of the finest educational attractions we have been to. At the time we were there, there was an "Easter Egg Hunt" where the children were given a list of clues and had to search the different exhibits for the answers. This captivated our granddaughter(11). The exhibits were well designed and laid out. There was a mock road... More
