This is a small local museum, with info on the Lusitania, which sunk offshore, as well as other local history. It's inexpensive and worth a visit if you're in Cobh.

Very small museum but plenty of local history. An interesting exhibition about Irish dance is on for the season. The entrance fee is very small and the local man working there that day was clearly very knowledgeable about all the exhibits. Well worth a look.

Housed in an old Church the building has more of a story to tell. There is not much to see but the entry fee is only a few Euros. There are some interesting artifacts but make this part of a multi -stop tour as opposed to an afternoon activity.I was interested in the old uniforms. The history of the Church... More

THis is a tiny place and costs only 2 euros so don't get too excited, but it was worth the cost and the time to view a nice little collection of local memorabilia.

A fantastic little museum to spend a few hours in checking out some local history - there is an interesting quirk to this place you will have to see to believe

Small but good overall, different information about Cobh. Irish music and dance rich history as part of the community.

We found this museum while we were exploring Cobh, and we had planned to only stay for 20 minutes or so, but we ended up staying for over an hour! You wouldn't think that such a small museum could be so packed with such great and interesting facts and stories about the Lusitania, the Titanic, and the history of Cobh!... More

This museum is overshadowed in popularity by the Queenstown Story. The small museum is quite near the Queenstown Story, up a stairway across the road. Its main feature is what happened the Lisutania passengers as they were brought to Cobh after been torpedoed. If the Lisutania is your interest this is the place for you. It has a modest admission...

This museum gets overlooked a lot, we were told at tourist information - probably because of its slightly out of the way location, up a hill from Cobh. It's only €4 admission, so worth a look. It's an old fashioned display case museum, with some changing exhibitions. The most important exhibit is a hard tack biscuit which was on board... More
