    I was undecided which museum to visit and I opted for Hunt museum. It’s the personal, eclectic collection of John and Gertrude Hunt across 3 levels. The staff are knowledgeable - thank you Mike.

    Alright
    Its a well kept older building which adds a lot of charm to the exhibition, personally I found 12,50 per adult a bit much for what you get to see. I have been in many museums over the years and while I appreciate keeping local history alive I think its a little expensive for what you get.

    Great Museum! Hidden Picasso! Exhibits for the Blind!
    Well worth the small admission price this museum is full of history from unusual and local places. The volunteers were very knowledgeable about the items as they told stories and history about what we were seeing. I was especially impressed with their efforts to mage the exhibit items “see-able” to those with vision impairments. Detailed replicas of the items are available to touch and feel along with audio explanations. Look for the Picasso that is easily missed!

    Hunt’s fascinating hunt
    What an experience! Wonderful artifacts and very interesting display. We also had a knowledgeable and curious docent. She helped us enjoy the experience for two hours and was included in admission.

    A small but mighty museum!
    If in Limerick be sure to spend a few hours in this amazing museum! Though small when thinking of museums, their collection was extensive, impressive and just amazing! I also enjoyed lunch in the cafe and was approached by a docent who shared more details on the exhibit I was viewing at the time. Every staff member was friendly and the exhibits were beautifully presented and explained. Don't miss this museum - it's small, but mighty!

    Thoroughly Enjoyable Museum
    Excellent museum. I really enjoyed my 2 hours at The Hunt. Set across three floors, it's the perfect size, small enough to be homely and doable, big enough to keep you engaged. There's a ceramic exhibition in the basement to start with a good virtual reality show and a superb ineractive world map. As you continue there's such an eclectic mix. There are Jack B Yeats paintings, a Picasso and other world masters. The Captain's Room is especially striking. Then there are archaeological treasures from early Christians back through the Viking age, Iron Age and earlier. It's actually hard to describe the variety of exhibits and so many eclectic and niche items. I really loved it, €12 cheap at the price. Nice coffee shop a d gift shop. No parking on site but plenty of places in nearby streets. Easily walkable from King John's Castle and the High Street shopping area.

    A unique collection, fascinating, and well worth the visit
    We had read about this small musuem housed in the historic Customs House, and it did not disappoint. Our only regret is that we could have spent far more time there than we had. Highly recommnded.

    We just dropped in.
    Passing by we decided to visit this well-known Limerick landmark. Senior rates are available. Reception told us that a free tour had just begun and we said we'd join it. What a great decision that turned out to be. Brendan, our guide was super knowledgeable in all areas of the exhibition. He made the visit for us.

    Interesting Small Mueseum
    I toured the Hunt Museum during the A Wild Atlantic Way exhibition. The exhibition was definitely the highlight and showcased some amazing pieces. However, I enjoyed the rest of the museum, too. I found the docents to be very friendly and knowledgeable.

    It's great you're back open..
    The first visit here, many years ago, was somewhat rushed. Fortunately, not this time. Also had the benefit of two terrific tour guides. St. Mary's Cathedral and the Limerick Museum were both closed on the day, but the Hunt did'nt disappoint.

    Great to Visit with Surprise Cafe
    I have ben to the museum on a number of occasions. They are warm and friendly and welcome the art lover together with casual visitor. There's always an interesting exhibition to see as well as the more permanent exhibits. And when you have finished you can have a coffee or a tasty lunch in the museum's café - with views over the River Shannon.

A great collection of varied treasures laid out well. Size of museum perfect - big enough without being overwhelming. An excellent curator on hand to impart nuggets of information and to answer questions. The building itself is lovely too and of historical interest.

We expected to have a quick browse of the museum, however the fantastic tour guide Brendan kept us interested. We ended up in the museum for 2hrs listening to all the interesting stories. I would recommend booking a tour

The museum displays a great number of artifacts collected by the Hunt Family, but it is a relatively small collection compared to those found in larger Irish museums. It would be of some interest if you have not visited other museums, but if you have toured widely, you will not find anything unique.

The Hunt Museum
Once Limerick’s Custom House
The Hunt Museum houses over 2000 original works of art and artifacts. Besides religious works of art, the collection also has items dating back to the ancient civilizations of Egypt, Greece and Rome. Some of the unique items include Mary Queen of Scots Cross, a bronze horse sculpted by Leonardo da Vinci, a sculpture of Apollo, and the Limerick Mitre and Crozier. The only stipulation from the Hunt’s was the collection had to remain intact and had to be housed in the Limerick are for enjoyment of the people of Ireland. Thanks to the generosity of an art dealer and expert on medieval art and furniture John and Gertrude Hunt we all can enjoy the collection.

The Horse Outside Project
Near the entrance to the Hunt Museum are two brightly hand-painted horses. The images on the horses were influenced by objects in the museum’s collection. The horses were a collaborative project with Limerick’s Corridor Art Connecting Project.
