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.

I never knew the last stop of the Titanic was Cobh, Ireland. Great museum with information the immigration of Irish people to the US and the last stop of the Titanic. If in South Eastern Ireland a must see.

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!
