  • We stopped here on our vacation from Ohio and COULD NOT GO THROUGH stating they were not open to the public because they are having a special for 911. They should have put this on their website.

  • This museum is in development stage. Not a lot here yet but it is forthcoming. What they have...such as a sample Irish dwelling is interesting. This museum is telling the story of Irish immigration...

  • There's a lot of promise here, but for a city with as lengthy and deep an Irish tradition and heritage, this was pretty disappointing. The gift shop was almost as big as the entire rest of the museum, and even it was nothing to write home about. One consolation is that it is just a few yards away from both the Old English and the Pump Station, two of the best places in town for good beer and tasty food.
  • New bigger location. Getting on their feet post covid but lots to view with more to come. Go visit, you'll get a great welcome from all.
