My kids enjoyed the old Tralee area but I was sad that there was no longer a little train ride. You can dress us and wonder round. Making things interactive is a plus.

The museum was very interesting,it was well played out and offers's you a trip back in time to, Medieval Tralee. There is a great exhibition, on at the moment, about Rodger Casement and his involvement with 1916 Rising.

It has an excellent recreation build of a medieval street in the basement - by the time I reached the end I felt I had truly travelled back in time. There are also several interactive items. Continuing upstairs there... More

The Exhibition is extremely well done and gives a great overview and great insights into the early life, consular life, revolutionary life, arrest, trial, execution and repatriation of this amazing man. In particular, to be able... More

Our visit began in the Special Exhibition Gallery detailing the life of Roger Casement - "from crown servant and celebrated international humanitarian to doomed revolutionary.". A fascinating story of a man I hadn't heard of and who I now want to read more of. The Main Gallery contains a vast array of exhibits through the centuries in Kerry up to... More

Definitely a must see. The kids loved it. They completely cover the history of Kerry from the first settlers up to now. The kids could follow their own trail and fill out a questionnaire in the first floor. Even though they do not speak much English yet it worked wonderfully. Younger kids can dig out some bones in the beginning... More
