A lovely way to pass a few hours for adult and children alike.Take a stroll through medieval Tralee and dig for dinosaur bones in the sand pit. It is very affordable and often has great kids holiday activities. Some where different to bring the kids on a rainy day.

I went to the museum primarily to see the Medieval exhibition but that wasn't even my favorite part. It was interesting, well presented and fantastic for kids as well. I would definitely recommend it to anyone - it is well worth the small entry fee and was my favorite part of the town.

This was only my second time in the museum and it has really changed. No little trains any more!! the kids really enjoyed it and loved getting their photos taken with the displays although the years have taken their toll. Still a very cheap and enjoyable display.

The Lonely Planet review is right, this museum is an absolute treat. The entry is cheap for adults, the exhibitions are very interesting and well presented. "Kerry Lives" tells the story of the Kerry people through amazing photographs. The Museum Gallery takes you through the complete history of Ireland, with a special focus on Kerry (it is awesome to see... More

Our trip to Kerry county museum was a great day out, very interesting and informative for all members of the family. The walk through medieval Tralee & the Tom Crean room was the highlights for us. Its located right beside the town park too which is lovely for a walk afterwards.

Absolutely brilliant, took my seven year old and there was so much to do she loved it, and really educational. Value for money, it was only five euro and my daughter was free, I would highly recommend it, especially when the weather is bad and looking for something great to do.

‘Kerry Lives’ is a collection of photographs depicting life in Kerry in the 50s, 60s, and 70s. Remarkable, beautiful, and captivating. I honestly thought I would breeze through this section of the museum, but ended up engrossed with all the images. The Audio Visual Room also drew me in, where I sat and watched through many of the videos. Of... More
