Free - just donations. A wonderful collection of varied objects in no particular order. Entertaining.

We read about the port area of Cobh and detoured there when we drove from Cork. We found the museum and went in without high expectations. It is a little gem with its emphasis on emigration from Ireland and the steam ships. We spent a very pleasant couple of hours there and enjoyed ourselves. Well worth the drive to quirky... More

Wow, I thought this was still a Church!!! was wondering what the horse was doing out front!!! This is a really small old Presbyterian Church which was donated to the town by the last Rector (sorry if that's not official title). The horse outside (not real!) was representative of the exhibition of the role of the horse in World War... More

Each of the small towns have a church and a small local museum that gives an overview of their community. The Cobh Museum staff are very friendly and helpful. There is small gift shop and most importantly clean bathrooms. There were drawings, paintings and local artifacts.

Fascinating piece of Irish history. This was the last stop of the Titanic to board passengers before the fateful voyage. Cobh is a lovely quaint town.

Tiny museum, heavy on Titanic artifacts. Only real attraction is opportunity to search passenger manifests of ships carrying Irish diaspora; most of this easily available on line. OK investment of 20 minutes if you're waiting for the train, but there is a fee.

Potted history of a slice in time. Pilot's log of Titanic adds to the richness of the exhibit. Worth a walk up the hill!

I went with some friends to the Cobh Museum by train. When we arrived to the town we could see the huge Cobh Church and its touristic Port. We were given a ticket as we traveled in the Titanic. Some of us travelled in first class and the others were in third class. Finally, we all survive. Very good explaination... More

The Cobh Museum is housed in an old church overlooking Cobh harbor. It only costs 3 euros and has historical exhibits of life in Cobh. There has a nice replica of the Titanic, old photographs, ship logs and newspapers, old toys and clothing. The museum is located on the hill above the train station and cruise ship terminal. Walk up... More

One visit here is enough, the staff were not that friendly and lacked local knowledge, the artefacts are minimal and the building is very tired, it is an old presbyterian church, that needs some love.
