We were short on time so wandered around by ourselves. We heard some of the tour guides providing excellent info to groups that you don't don't get by yourself. Next time we're going to do the tour. We go to Waterford many times a year to visit family but this time decided to do the tourist bit and we're so... More

Had a wonderful day out visiting the museum. Our guide was fantastic. Explained the events accurately and even our 7 year old listened very keenly. He even taught Jennifer about medieval coin minting. Thoroughly enjoyed. What a lovely staff!!

Extraordinary collection of medieval artifacts in informative, innovative museum. We had a wonderful tour but wished we could have viewed all the movies and examined the displays more thoroughly.

Very interesting for whole family. Kids liked drawing area and real size setups with staffed animals and mannequins. I liked feeling free to explore through museum.

At a loose end in Waterford so we popped in here - fair play I was impressed. We had to wait 30 minutes before the guided tour started. Our tour leader was Mr Whatwhy - great name, great bloke, what a star he was. Loved every minute. WHY? I am an impatient uninterested cynical tourist but he really REALLY made... More
