Armchair Travels with Kerry County Museum

While worldwide travel is still a little restricted join us as we select objects from the Museum’s collection, whose stories take you across the five continents of the world before bringing you back home to Kerry. We hope these will provide a fun, quirky and inspirational way of getting in touch with some of the county’s material heritage, which is held in trust for the people of Kerry by the Museum. It will take you to some of the unheralded parts of the county as well prompting a fresh look at familiar landmarks. You can watch our new Armchair Travels videos by visiting Kerry County Museum’s Online Resources.

Kerry County Museum is delighted to participate in Cruinniu na nOg, a day of creativity for children, on Saturday 13 June 2020. There are lots of free online events taking place in Kerry and all over Ireland. Our workshop is all about the Vikings in Kerry! Children can make their own Viking shield, hear about the Vikings who settled near Tralee more than 1000 years ago and listen to a Viking saga. Simply find us on Facebook on 13 June when we will upload three posts, each containing a different activity. Kerry County Museum would love to receive your pictures and comments afterwards.
