The Cobh museum was fascinating and full of reminders of the great titanic as well as the immigration back in the days. The depiction of life on the boat was really terrifying and saddening, a kind of a wake up call for all not to forget the sufferings of the past. The history of the titanic is so photographic and...

This is a little gem up the hill from the Heritage centre in an old church. There was an interesting display about Horses in the first world war with equipment used by vets on display. It also had an exhibition about Lusitania and the boats that went out to rescue people when it was sunk. A small museum well worth... More

Here is a museum that tells the story of Cobh's participation in World War I, the rescue/recovery effort of victims of the sinking of the Lusitania, and Cobh's maritime history. A variety of documents and artifacts. Just a few euros for admission. It is up the hill from the Heritage Museum and the railroad station.

What a gem to find this museum right in the heart of Cobh! Great exhibits. Very hard to imagine that this is staffed by volunteers for the most part. A must see!

So many artefacts from the locality, and all explained with patient care and attention to detail. They include WW1 German, French and British soldiers' helmets: did the Frenchman survive the strike to his head? Atmospheric surroundings of an old Presbyterian church adds greatly to the experience.

I was captivated by its exhibits and spent a lot of time viewing each one and reading its history. In September this year they had an exhibition highlighting the role of the horse in the First World War.
