Small but comprehensive. Don't bother with the minuscule Egyptian and non Irish collections if your time is brief. Their unparalleled bog artifact collection and explanatory notes are wonderful. I would have loved to linger further over their brooches. Too bad they have no truly good reproductions of torques or broaches in their somewhat cluttered "gift shop"
