Notwithstanding that we have been in Waterford on a few occasions since the Medieval Museum opened in 2013, we just thought it would not be worth the time.

Then, earlier this week, we were invited on a tour of the museum and thought we would see what's on offer.

Well, we were very impressed.

This is much more than a museum; more a series of living history experiences that is brought to life by a team of passionate staff. As soon as you enter, the experiences unfold in front of you with archery demonstrations. You can even get an archery lesson for an additional €5.

Being on a guided tour will make a huge difference to your experience. Our guide was excellent and contextualised the history of Waterford against the backdrop of Irish, British and European history.

All the exhibits are presented in an informative fashion. The piece-de-resistance must be the gold-braided vestments and the story about how they were uncovered. We won't spoil it by revealing more on here.

In conclusion, we thoroughly enjoyed our experiences at The Medieval Museum. It is great value too at €7.

This was the best trip I had while in Ireland , found it both informative and entertaining. THe guided tour, like the Bishops Palace nearby was about an hour long and easy to follow. A lot of the talk really put you in the mood of the era. We returned to look at some of the items in more depth. Staff were very helpful and always willing to answer questions.

This is an excellent example of a modern museum. The highlight in my opinion is the mayor's wine vault at the lowest level, but the all the exhibits are well displayed and explained, and the short video presentations are helpful.

Hi magpie

Thank you very much for taking the time to review your recent visit to the award winning Medieval Museum. I'm delighted that you enjoyed the 'Undercrofts', the 13th century Choristers' Hall and the 15th century Mayors Wine Vault, they are such a surprise to visitors when they come into such a modern building like the Medieval Museum and find these secret treasures underneath them.

The auditoriums on each of the floors are always worthwhile viewing as they give you an insight into what lies before you, prior to entering the individual galleries.

We do hope you come back and visit us again.

Was thinking about going to Waterford Crystal but realised how boring that would be. Ducked into the Medieval Museum and went on the guided tour. Found it highly informative and good fun. Archery lessons on hand for 5euro! Downstairs cave is great and the coin press is fun. Floors one and two have some interesting stuff but really do recommend the guided tour to get the most out of it. Our tour guide was really excellent, nice young lady, good humour. The shop is FANTASTIC with helmets and glass cutting live.
