Owner description: The magnificent curved facade of the warm butter-coloured stone building draws in the visitor. The eye-catching giant sculpture on the gable was inspired by a tiny 13th century belt mount found in Waterford. It is Ireland’s only purpose-built medieval museum and the only building on the island to incorporate two medieval chambers, the 13th century Choristers’ Hall and the 15th century Mayor’s Wine Vault. Don't miss the stunning Heavens' Embroidered Cloths, Waterford's cloth-of-gold 15th century vestments, the only piece of clothing from King Henry VIII's reign to survive in the world - the 'Cap of Maintenance' and the Great Charter Roll from 1373, containing the earliest contemporary portrait of a medieval English king (Edward III) shown to Queen Elizabeth on her 2011 state visit to Ireland. These and many more unique artefacts await you on your guided tour of the award wining Medieval Museum.

Don't miss this museum. Included in the entrance fee is the usual headphones and audio player arrangement, but this offering is much better than usual, with automatic triggering in each room and sub routine if you need more information.

From the Viking origins of Irelands oldest city to Normans to Cromwell,Tudors all the way to the modern age, it was quite interesting to see all these different eras and then realise that the great parchmnet book is a city doomsday book, something I didn't know existed, but then there it is over 1,000 years of history presneted in one easy walkthrough - we doubled up and added the Bishops palace after this incl the Irish Olympic long jump hero in 1906. Quite an interesting few hours, very educational and shows the way we used to be with kings queens and normans.

The guided tour was well done with the guide dressed in character. There were plenty of exhibits to entertain and educate all age groups. Well worth a visit.
