The Hunts had accumulated a vast variety of antiques and artifacts, which are well displayed. So great that they are available to share with everyone. The curator was very knowledgeable and eager to share.

I brought my 10 year old to this attraction thinking that he would bore quickly but several hours later he was still opening drawers to examine contents and marveled at many of the historical items. The Hunt Museum is well laid out and the contents span many centuries. This is a must for history fans. We went on Sunday which... More

A real hidden Gem of a museum in Limerick. Initially went to see the collection of Lace in the Limerick Museum but found it closed. Open Mon to Fri 9-5. The Hunt Museum is small but perfectly formed. It is a collection of Art and Antiquities collected by Gertrude and John Hunt. There is something for everyone and I found... More

The collection was overwhelming and we didn't have enough time to truly take it all in on our first visit. An amazing variety of items - paintings by Picaso, Renoir and Gohgan, as well as, the falconry hood, Christian artifacts and jewelry. Simply lovely!

I very much enjoyed the museum. We had a volunteer walking around with us through the museum - very informative, but I'm prone to walking around to enjoy things myself. Wonderful jewelry, dishes, paintings and drawings by Renoir and Gohgan (sp). The museum contained beautiful crosses, and numerous sculptures of Christ. I was particularly interested in the exhibit which had... More

The archaeological finds in this museum were very helpful in our understanding so many things about Ireland with context for our trip. The only thing that would have made it better is an audio guide or docent to give us some of the highlights.

My husband waited here while I went to meeting. An eclectic mix of object d'arts. Some minor works by bigger names. Parking around the corner but none on site. Lovely building. Worth an hour or two.
