I dont usually go to museums but since this museum had good reviews on Trip Advisor - I decided to give it a go and was not disappointed.

Had a guided tour from Teresa. Really enjoyed it. It was very informative without information overload. Tour was adequate length to maintain interest.

Unable to take the spiral staircase due to buggy but lift was available - this didn't in any way impact upon our enjoyment - still highly recommend going. Staff were very helpful assisting with the lifts and Teresa waited for us to arrive before proceeding with the tour.

Absolutely worth the visit. Best thing I did in Waterford. The guide was great, very informative without over loading. A good way to escape the rain.

Decided this was a must-see based on other Tripadvisor reviews and we were not disappointed! Begin by taking the tour, which lasts about 45 mins, as these pick out some of the museum highlights and allow you to decide what you want to go back and see in more detail. Our guide, Derek, was excellent - informative and amusing.The tours seem to be every half hour so if you have to wait for the start of the next one you can wander around the museum in the interim.

The interpretive panels are well written and cover a host of topics related to medieval Ireland. We were particularly interested in the second floor, devoted to the influence of British monarchs - make sure you see Henry VIII's hat! Do take time to see the short videos too.

However, the crowning glory was the collection of medieval vestments - a stunning collection simply displayed allowing you a 360 deg view of the fabulous colour and detail.

Allow yourself 1-2 hours to do the museum justice.

Good afternoon Trudi B

Thank you so very much for your fantastic review of the award winning Medieval Museum, we really appreciate you taking the time to visit and more importantly to give us such wonderful and glowing feedback.

All of our professional tour guides do a wonderful job informing our visitors of life here in Medieval times and Derek, well, you would think he actually lived in medieval times with the wealth of his knowledge and loves to interact with everyone! I will pass on your comments to him.

Again, thanks you so much for your generosity of this review, we believe that we have something special here to offer visitors and by your review, we have done a good job!

Built on top of ancient city buildings. Exhibits are well presented and there are videos covering the history of the city. Tours available to give more in depth information on historic characters and events. Basic range of goods in gift shops. Can buy reproduction medieval armour if you have the money and can carry it home. Well worth the entrance fee. Connects to theatre royal building that has good tea room.

Good afternoon Mead133

Many thanks for visiting the award winning Medieval Museum and taking the time to review us, we appreciate everyone's feedback and are thrilled that you thoroughly enjoyed your recent visit. It is great to get such positive feedback and to include our shop! Don't forget we now have a qualified Medieval Archer who will show you how to loose off an arrow using a medieval longbow, as well in the undercrofts you can mint your own coin, as Waterford was a Royal mint! So much to do and see and so little time.

We hope you get an opportunity to come back and visit us soon!
