Kerry County Museum reviews
Engaging, well thought out, clear and concise overview of Irish History. The interactive exhibits were limited by Covid-19 more »
Amazing exhibition to Roger Casement. Such informative history. A walk through the medieval town was fantastic with the sounds of bygone days all around 🚶🏻♀️ The Crean exhibition is a must see... more »
Huge museum with several different exhibition rooms starting with first settlements, bronze age, medieval and Victorian times until today. Several revolution against the British lead through it like a red thread. In the basement, there is a medieval town which you can walk through and learn about life back then. This is nicely done for children. There is also a special exhibition which is changing regularly. A mini cinema shows a film that belongs to the special exhibition. The one I saw was produced by school children and very well done.
Great value for money. My children loved it. To see what they have been taught in school. There in front of them. There is a nice discovery trail.
