Waterford Treasures Medieval Museum, Waterford

(4.5/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • This did not really rock my boat. A small rather limited museum. It might appeal to children who are interested in the time period or topic.  more »
  • A very good museum to get a feel for history of city. Been twice and would go again. Get the double ticket and visit the wonderful bishop house museum next door  more »

  • A most impressive collection. A must see for all visits to Waterford. An excellent narrative of Waterford's history, somewhat hidden by its current modest appearance.
  • Some great local treasures here with guided tours available and some amazing treasures on show
  • A gem of a museum with an impressive collection from medieval Waterford.
  • Not open at 9:45
  • A great visit with an exciting guide! The explanations help to the understanding of the history of the city
