Small facility and packed with local history events

This small museum is located near the water and resides within an old converted church. It is packed with information about local history including the Titanic and Lusitania.

There is a really old bible that contains the name of God in it on the altar. It also has a lot of historical elements to it. It's well worth a visit. It looks like a church from the outside and the staff are really friendly. If you must take photos, don't use the flash, but increase the exposure time.

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...

A visit here is to see the Irish people and their past, when in Ireland go with the flow, they are much the same as Aussies, no worries and you will get there in the end. Relax and enjoy, never be in a hurry.

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!
