Looking for something to do near our hotel, we opted to head here after our Nancy Hands lunch. This place was a short 6 minute walk from our hotel and admission was free (donations, gratefully accepted).
Located in the old Collins Barracks, a former military barracks, named after Michael Collins (Irish revolutionary, soldier and politician) in 1922. The museum opened to the public in 1997 and contains displays of furniture, silver, ceramics and glassware, as well as examples of folk life and costume, and money and weapons.
The museum is open from 10 AM to 5 PM Tuesday to Saturday and from 1 to 5 PM, Sunday and Monday. We spent about an hour exploring the displays and barely scratched the surface. Displays are well presented and informative.
Currency displays including coins inside a transparent handrail
