This is an excellent small museum, an interesting collection of quality artifacts, with some excellent explanatory panels. With free entry as well if you have any interest in history and are in Ennis you would be foolish to miss it.
A small and interesting collection explaining important human and geologic milestones that have occurred in the creation of this region. Many interactive exhibits and artifacts will enrich a visitors understanding of county Clare and Ireland's history.
Nice little museum that is free and has some interesting display’s of the region’s history, both ancient and recent. Particularly good is the oral history project display which features Clare residents sharing family stories, some going back to the Great Famine. They also have special exhibits.

The 9 yr old was able to wander around & look at things that interested him & then come to... 更多
I have visited this museum several times. There are excellent displays. The staff really make an effort to make you feel at home and will explain anything in more detail if you want more information. There is also tourist information available at the venue and good toilet facilities also.
