Well layed out & Covid compliant. Lots to see & no charge. Cafe closed when we were there but it wasn’t a massive issue.

The staff were so rude and implied that I and my family were going to steal something. The exact sentence she said to my family " just to let you know we have security cameras." Also when we tried to leave the staff give us dirty looks and whispering behind are backs.

An absolute gem, extremely well done museum with some truly world class artefacts, superb staff, amazing view of the Cathedral, free in and excellent coffee shop! There was loads to see and learn, unusually both parents and kids were equally enthralled. Top hit for all of us was a 2600 year old Celtic cauldron in perfect condition. This is a must see!

We discovered this by accident, due to seeing a road sign one day on the way back to Coney Island where we are staying. I would highly recommend it, it’s a fabulous museum, free too and gives a detailed account of the county’s history and this local prison. When we arrived we were greeted by a friendly face and given an explanation of the layout and the purpose of the museum as well as some leaflets with more detail, including accounts of some people who were in the prison which was fascinating. It’s a really varied museum and can occupy you for a few hours if you spend time looking at all the exhibits. It has a lovely tearoom too which great views. Afterwards I had a quick look on the website and found a list of the people who had been jailed there which added to this experience even more. Highly recommended !

What’s great place . Went up with family for information regarding Downpatrick, the staff were friendly especially Mary who went out of her way to make us feel at home and provided us with the information we needed . The exhibitions were really well set out and offered a wide selection of information. There is a small restaurant , very clean with a good selection of food and friendly staff. Well worth a visit
