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.

The geraldine town experience in the museum's basement is a must do when visiting Tralee! Our kids were amazed at how realistic it was, it looks & feels like the real thing!

Great museum, highly recommend for family or for adults looking for a good overview of Irish history. Not huge but high quality. The medieval town section is really cool, interactive exhibit. Really transports you back.

Visit this museum,especially the photo collection of Kerry Life 1955-1970. It reminds of the economic failure or Ireland by the late 1950s as well as giving us a glimpse of rural life. Museum also contains excellent overview of Irish history and a museum of a medieval town. Both are well laid out and informative. Medieval display is great for younger... More

Place surprisingly very interesting for all ages. Even better children are free with a paying adult. Best €5 I spend that day. Downstairs, Tralee medieval streets with figures dressed for the times was great. The main Gallery has priceless archaeological objects, impressive life-size dioramas, exquisitely crafted models. Another gallery has a beautifully mounted exhibition of black and white photographs taken... More

Highly informative about Irish history. The photographic exhibition covering Ireland from 1951 to 1973 was particularly revealing.
