This museum has a good combination of fine art and archaeological artifacts.The archaeological portion is very well presented with documentation, background and explanations. Plan on spending some time here to get the full experience. It will enhance your appreciation of Irish culture and history.

Great convenient location with loads of unique exhibits. Well worth a visit. The courtyard exhibits are fun too. Allow 1-2 hours and you will have a memorable experience.

Very interesting artefacts, original pieces and replicas of chalices, pottery etc. Easy to find your way around this museum. The only disappointing thing for me was that the famous gold cross given by Mary Queen of Scott's to her executioner was not to be seen. It is on show in the national museum in Dublin at the moment.

The hunt museum is truly a hidden gem in Limerick city. It has a beautiful gift shop as you enter with a wide range of price tags. The collections in the museum itself are both historicsl and contrmporary. Alongside all of this is a very attractive, reasonably priced restaurant. Well worth a visit when in Limerick!

Not enough written about most displays, some interesting ones. It is a relatively small museum so worth a visit, it's free on Sundays.

We went in as we passed not expecting much and found a wonderful collection of art. While we were there a special exhibit of local artist was particularly moving. This is well worth the 5 Euro admission

I asked a guide there something and she was kind enough to give me a full tour of the museum. Being an antiques appraiser I was interested in alot of the pieces. She was very informed and personable. I felt like I had booked a private tour!
