  • A century of history. Nice place. Lot of thing to learn
  • All based on 11th to 15th Century Tralee
  • So much fun to view the exhibits here. The mannequins are entertaining and you get to learn something as well.
  • Ideal way to avoid the rain and learn something to boot. Also lovely park with rose garden and 'Rose of Tralee' just opposite.
  • Very well put together. Very nice staff.
