Artifacts found at Waterford share their story at Waterford Treasures Medieval Museum. A costumed re-enactor leads you through the display galleries and infuses the experience with stories of battles and daily life. The Great Charter Roll of Waterford of 1373 holds a place of honor among the artifacts, as do gold medieval vestments that sparkle under the display lights. The attraction is connected to two other museums, so consider a combination ticket to save money on the ticket price of each. Guided tours take place every 45 minutes, and you are free to roam the museum yourself after the tour. Photography is allowed, but remember to turn off your flash. If you're hungry, stop by the on-site cafe. You can leave belongings and overcoats at the cloakroom. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Waterford holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Waterford Treasures Medieval Museum and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Very full of information, three floors of history. The bottom floor was intact stone remains. We got the last tour which seemed very rushed through with loads of information. Went again the next day to look at the objects slower.
  • This is a really worthwhile museum to visit, especially when the entry fee is part of the combined Waterford Museums ticket. I loved that the basement has stone steps and walls from the original building. It houses a compact but impressive collection, including the lost vestments from the 1400s.
