I live in Waterford City and I took the tour of this Museum one day when I had friends down. It was an hour well spent and was disgusted with myself that I hadn't visited previously. Well worth it. I think a second visit may be on the cards.

Great displays and well set out presentation of the history of Waterford throughout the medieval years. Very interesting. Certainly a bloodthirsty lot in those days. The fifth star would be earned if the audio visual presentations were improved.
