Very well laid out museum with lots to see and do. I have family history in Newry and it was nice to chat to local staff who could help with some place names. Next year I will be booking some time to do some research

Did some intensive family research in the reading room with pre booked archives from The Reside Collection, all ready and waiting for my arrival. Follow up CD of documents and further information was posted on in a very short time. Excellent service
