As a history geek I found the mueseum especially well put together. The venue was well ordered and not crowded.

Red Luas line is handy and get off at the Museum stop. Excellent museum with interesting artefacts. None of the staff interacted with us which was a disappointment compared to the Ulster museum in Belfast. The history after 1921 is glossed over a bit.

Wonderful, beautiful exhibition of craftsmanship by skilled people who previously worked in Waterford Crystal. I really enjoyed it. Some of the exhibits are modeled on artifacts from the National Museum.
