Waterford Treasures Medieval Museum, Waterford

4.6
#1 of 10 in Museums in County Waterford
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 interesting display of historical artifacts. The guide tours are very interesting and worth it.
  • Wonderful tour! The guide brought the whole era alive. Fabulous treasures!
  • The museum was excellent. I recommend getting the guided tour
  • Lovely museum, especially on a wet and blustery Irish summers day. Beautiful modern building built over medieval cellars. Fantastic to see. You can also get a combined ticket for this museum and the Bishops Palace which saves you money. No coffee shop in the museum but there is one in the Bishops Palace.
  • Fantastic place we will go there again next time we are in Ireland
