A great break to walk through and learn a bit of history about the area. Self guided and inexpensive. The boys really liked it. Deceiving from the outside since it doesn't look like more than a town building. Do go check it out!!!

Being English I did not have a great knowledge of Irish history. In this museum I was able to travel through time and gain a excellent insight of local Irish history. Found it very interesting.

I loved this museum. It has a beautiful exhibition of photographs of the life in rural Kerry back in the fifties, a really complete and engaging exhibition about the history of Ireland, and a lovely real size reproduction of medieval Tralee, where you can find yourself walking through the streets of Tralee, you can even dress up in middle age...

Had a lovely time going back to the museum, many years after first being there with my own parents, this time I brought my own kids. They loved exploring the sand to find hidden bones and treasures, though our youngest (2) was a bit freaked out in the medieval Tralee part. I loved it though, and also love the smell,... More

On our drive to Dingle town from Doolin, we stopped in Tralee for lunch and a visit to the museum. Very quiet, nice museum, doesn't take long to tour. If you have the Heritage Cards, worth a stop.

This museum outlines middle age history of County Kerry. Entire village scenes are recreated life size with figures in appropriate dress and scenarios. Word smoke, aromas and the smells of village life add to the realistic recreations. The exhibit brings you face to face with medieval village life. Afterwards, take a stroll through the lovely rose garden.

A nice local museum with plenty of insight into the people and past times of the area. Also very informative section on Irish history through the years. We enjoyed the medieval walk through street scene! A nice way to spend an afternoon when in Tralee.
