Just two floors and about 6 rooms, it does not take very long to visit this museum - a bit longer if you watch the video and read all the information. The section on the 'bog butter' was particularly interesting and also the butter labels. Fee for entry. Parking is available close by but the streets are narrow so you need to be careful.

When we were walking around the town, we stumbled across the Butter Museum. Had read a bit about it, but not much. Remembered it was pretty cheap price-wise, and since we're ballin' on a budget, decided to give it a shot. SO GLAD WE DID!!! This was the best museum I've ever been to!!! What made our visit so great? Getting there at 11:30, watching the short film, then watching butter be made at noon (only on certain days) and helping MAKE THE BUTTER! Woohoo!! Not just for kids, but adults too! We even got to take home the butte we made! Isn't that awesome?? The museum itself is super neat and interesting, too! Such a great trip, totally worth it. And the staff are so incredibly nice and informative, too! Definitely will go back if I'm ever in Cork!!!!

Most certainly worth visiting. It is an extremely interesting and unusual museum. Initially shown a video presentation which lasted about 15/20 mins and focused on the history of Irelands diary industry from late 50's to mid 80's with the emphasis on the impact of the EU.

Perhaps not to everyone's taste, but I thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the butter museum - very interesting! The museum isn't huge but tells a great story and is well-presented.

Most interesting was the video in which the transition from small farm, home production to international exporting is described. Some of the other exhibits were also interesting. If there had not been other attractions nearby, we might have missed it, but it was good exercise and informative. Do not go out of your way, but if you are in the area, drop in.
