Visited this lovely museum in late October. The display of life in the middle ages was superb and engrossing and I learnt a lot about the 'famine' years and the results of that. We were however, looking forward to seeing the recreation of the middle ages street, but the area had been kitted out as a Halloween 'fright night' visit.... More

The Halloween tour, in my opinion was overpriced and too scary for young kids. 5 euro per adult is excessive for what it was. My mother on a walking stick wasn't told that the tour involved steps in darkness. Young kids crying. Possibly for age 10+.

I am not normally one for museums, but the photography exhibit here took me by surprise. The amazing collection of black-and-white prints of everyday Irish life throughout the 50's to 70's was completely captivating. The shots, taken by the husband and wife team of Padraig and Joan Kennelly, draw you right in and you can almost imagine being there. Have... More

There is a wonderful exhibition in the lower level of this gem of a museum. It is a life-like recreation of the medieval period of Tralee, Co. Kerry. It is quite magical and we loved it. This exhibit is a must for children and adults alike if you are in the area. What a good way to learn about life... More

There is plenty for everyone to see here and we spent 2 hours going around. Having costumes for everyone to wear is a fantastic idea and the kids loved it.

I had heard about this museum from a friend which is located in the Ashe Memorial Hall at the end of Denny Street. This is a gem of a museum and would recommend a stop here just to see this fine exhibition on local and national history. I think there is something for all interests here with exhibits on several...

We spent a whole Sunday afternoon here and had a great time. There was a little bit for everyone. While we found the second floor most interesting, our teenie daughter loved the special exhibition with the dresses of the Rose of Tralee. Our boys (both primary level) had a great time dressing up and seeing the medieval exhibition in the... More
