Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

After walking up steep steps to get to the museum we had a very rude man that literally spoke 2 words and stared. Made us feel very uncomfortable.

*Local review

Tiny and quaint museum on the hill. It used to be a Presbyterian church that is converted to house some of Cobh's historical artifacts. The building which has a gothic spire is lovely and so is the interior where one can see timber beams, tile floors, stained glass and other original materials. One can also see the old pulpit, organ and other church stuffs inside.

The contents of the museum are small but interesting especially if you are interested on the Lusitania tragedy. It also has rich local and maritime exhibits which are both permanent and revolving. Some visitors come here to research on their Irish genealogy, which makes this place an invaluable resource for those tracing their ancestry from Cobh.

A random selection of old photos and paraphernalia in no logical order, with little data (no dates on the photos) and no logical curation.

This museum was right on the wharf of Cobb pronounced Cove. We knew all about the Titanic and the potato famine etc but thought we’d give it a try. Fantastic! A must see! We were looking for some genealogy and there was a man at a desk for questions! Wow we were so impressed. He told us how the farmers in Ireland were hired as sailors in the 1700s and went to Newfoundland as fishermen. Some settled there and that’s probably how my husbands ancestors got to the Avalon Peninsula! He even printed us off some information and told us of a book. Just as an aside, when the ship pulled out a band played, people in costume danced and a few hundred people came out to wave! I love Ireland. What great people!

We went with friends who had an interest in the Lucitania and discovered a lot about it there, including the passenger list.

This tiny museum in a quaint former church is packed with exhibits focused primarily on the Lusitania. A great way to spend a little less than an hour.

We had an hour before our train left Cobh back to Cork. We climbed up the steps from the Heritage Center to the small church. At the time of our visit, there were several exhibits: cameras and snapshots of ordinary citizens from the 50's and 60's, photos and artifacts from the US servicemen stationed in Cobh during WWII, and logbooks and contemporaneous diaries from the Lusitania rescue. Certainly a wide variety of objects exhibited, and it makes for a fairly quick but interesting stop..
