A little find in the heart of Ennis. My 6 year old found it very interesting and enjoyed the idea of the turf and puctures of olden times

It's centrally located and entrance is free. The information center is located on the same ground floor. There are lovely artifacts, stones and interactive displays with voice or music. Be sure to go up to the second story as you might overlook it--stairs or elevator. The guards are super friendly and interested in their visitors.

This is a free museum in central Enid but is has a blackout period in the middle of the day. Good for county history.

As we were staying in Ennis, we thought we should visit and we were not disappointed. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The exhibitions were really interesting and well presented, As a bonus it was free to enter but I would gladly have paid

Very interesting material and displays about Ennis town and Clare county. What's more, it's all free, no charge. Located in town centre, on Arthur's Row lane, just off O'Connell Square

What a surprising museum! we visited because the admission was free and the weather was awful, but ended up enjoying the exhibition and learning a bit about Ennis and its history.
