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

We were pleasantly surprised with what this museum had to offer. The medieval exhibit with the streetscape of Tralee in that era with it half timbered houses was excellent - there was a pungent smell of ammonia in this section and we are not sure if that is by accident or design. The exhibit upstairs on Tom Crean was far... More

Really enjoyed visiting Kerry county museum. Three floors take you through photos from the 1950's to the Tom Crean room down to the archaeology room and on to the excellent Medieval experience. in the medieval experience you walk through the streets of Tralee 1450 AD. Fun for all the family including dressing up in clothes from the era. At 5... More

Myself and my husband enjoyed it. We loved strolling through the medival streets, the kids got dressed up in the costumes provided. They gave the kids a map and you can get clues on boards in the history part, but they got a bit bored doing that. But over all we loved it. very informatitve. will be back

For . A small local museum, it's got a lot of fairly well-presented exhibits. My favorite was the display of local photographs by the Kennallys, a local couple who took photographs of County Kerry from the 1950s until their deaths in the late 2010s.
