I spent over an hour viewing Lusitania artifacts and stories. The efforts to catalog the identity and artifacts of the victims reminded me of the analogous efforts taken with the World Trade Center. Also, I enjoyed the documentation of the US Naval presence during WWI....More

The lady in the museum(Mrs Morton) was very helpful and very knowledgeable about the history in the building as well as throughout the town. She goes back four generations in the town. Can even help with local tourist info.

This museum is the site of the last port of call for the Titanic. It features stories of the people who embarked here and their fates. It is so well done with all kinds of technological aids. We are glad we detoured to see it.

This is in a church that opened in 1854. I went there because my great grandmother left from Cobh in 1855. It's very small but has some interesting displays.

Dusty museum that housed in a former church building that since has seen many uses. Lots of antique communications in the form of personal letters and publications from the time.

From the waterfront the deconsecrated former Presbyterian Church which houses the museum looked wonderful. With its eye-catching red door, fine stonework and noteworthy windows, the facade is attractive. Ascending the steps it was a little disappointing to discover that we were too early in the...More
