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.

This is a small museum in an old Presbyterian Church. The exhibition is well laid out and very informative. The €3 entrance fee is definitely not excessive and I would say is very good value.

This was the only museum in Cobh before the new one opened on the old railway station but as it is volunteer run things are not up to date.

Short walk from the Heritage Center so it's worth checking out if it's your first time in Cobh. It's a small place but it could take a hour to see all that's on display. Gives you a good feel for the town's history. Staff is friendly and helpful.

Set up in the old Scots church the Cobh museum is not large, but is packed full of interesting artefacts about the town, in particular the two major events linked to the town, the visit of the Titanic in 1912 and the sinking of the Lusitania in 1915. Don't miss the chance to look at some of the Lusitania survivors... More
