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.
