Firstly one must congratulate the local council for such an inspiring facility. The artifacts and display generally covers the Newry and South Down history but also extends to the whole country. The museum is well laid out and the staff is very helpful. The museum affords one the opportunity to appreciate life in Newry in yesterday year. I have attached... More

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

This little museum is a great place to visit if you have a little bit of time to kill in Newry. We visited with my wife's grandparents and were very impressed with the museum staff. It was very quiet, and one of the members of staff gave us more or less a guided tour of the entire place. The exhibits... More
