This little museum is awesome. They have a very nice collection of local art. Not to be missed if you visit Limerick.

Dear ttChet, thank you for your very kind words, our local art works, of which most are for sale, add to the delights of our permanent collection.

Do you know that one of the 30 pieces of silver Judas was paid id reputed to be among the collection. Also some very fine paintings of local areas from times past. I particularly like the the painting of the Kilmallock countryside. One piece that would do well to be returned to Limerick is the Ardagh Chalice and this musuem would be a fitting place for its display.

Glad I went on a Sunday because it was free entrance. The only really amazing thing to me was pulling out a drawer and seeing sketches by famous artists inches away from me.

Lots to see and well worth a visit. Lots of artifacts from limerick . Visitors shop has nice bits to buy . However the cafe is disappointing. The food I'd good and tasty bit it looks unfinished.i just feel they could make it a lot better than loose chairs scattered and untidy looking. It just needs a bit of design and tlc

The Donald Teskey exhibition "Weather Guage" running until Feb 2017 is really worth a visit. It takes you to the west coast of Ireland in a dramatic fashion. Follow this with a great lunch at the Hunt museum cafe and you are laughing!
