They let us view the story of Tralee from the medieval ages. WOW !!!!!!!!!!! The story and figures brought the whole thing... More

The Museum has a broad base of exhibits but it also has an excellent photographic exhibition running. If you have children the recreation of medieval tralee will really appeal to them. It's a walk through of a village and a monastry. You can go through it as often as you like. Children will really like it. A good audio visual... More

Desk clerk was very helpful and friendly offering personal anecdotes about the history of the Dingle Peninsula. Museum offers thorough over view and details about the Dingle peninsula and County Kerry which made for a far better understanding of sites as I traveled throughout all the area.

Enjoyed the visit to get overview of the history of Kerry. Excellent for small children. Our young adults were a bit bored. Not a lot of exhibits featuring medieval displays.

This is a very informative museum about the history of Tralee and many aspects of Irish life. A great place to spend a wet afternoon the displays are well done and it is attractive for children. The walk up Denny street to the Ashe Memorial Hall where the museum is sited is lovely.

Loved the contemporary exhibit. After walking the Dingle Way it was fun to read about all the places we had visited before. The historical exhibit is great and very detailed, almost best to do over 2 days maybe, had a hard time to focus on all the details towards the end. Medieval part great for kids.
