Supreme museum! A gorgeous gem in Limerick city! Plenty to see, take your time and do not rush. Besides the art and the artifacts, the building itself is a work of art and historic importance.

My wife and I came to see the museum as it was a very wet day and not fit for much else We got a guided tour of all the fascinating things to see but for me the most beautiful was on of the 30 pieces of silver that Judus got for betraying Jesus.

This museum is set in a period building, formerly a Custom House, and is one of Limerick's hidden gems. It has a great collection of art and antiquities. One for the family as well as the individual. Central, has it's own coffee shop and gift shop and is a delight to visit. Free on Sundays, by the way.
