I really enjoyed my time at the Cobh Heritage Centre as my grandfathers emigrated to America from there. I enjoyed my time visiting with the genealogist on staff as he found many things that I had not in my research. Learning about the last stop of the Titanic was also very interesting! It was such a thrill to walk where... More

The museum is located in the delightfully restored Victorian railway station. It... More

The museum was fun to walk through. You recieve a ticket at the beginning with a name on it. You can find more information about this persoon at the museum. They also focused on some of the biggest tragedies in Irish history. We spent about 45 minutes at the museum.

This is a must on your visit, plenty of information. The most moving part was reading the poem that was written in 2014 about the Titanic
