Fun for all the family including dressing up in clothes from the era. At 5... More

The medieval street is very good , in fact on par with the York yorvik experience without the car you travel in . When you first go in you wonder what the smell is but latter realise it is... 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.

A number of different exhibits. Combined, they give you a good feel for the history of Tralee and Kerry, as well as Irish history. Best part is the medieval village re-creation of Tralee during the time of the Fitzgeralds.

The museum is worth a visit. The opening exhibit is contemporary photography. The next exhibit has a number of quilts. More interesting to me is the history of Kerry from prehistoric times to the present. Medieval Tralee was an economic center in Kerry. The exhibits are informative and interesting. Finally, in the basement of the building is a representation of... More

Visited Kerry Museum while traveling through Tralee.Well worth a visit takes about an hour to have a look around but you can spend as much time as you like. Medieval exhibition in basement quite good. Black and white photos of Kerry life From 50-60-70s by a local photographer is also very good. The first documentary speaking about Kerry football may...
