Medieval Experience magically transforms into the Festive Hall for Christmas

By sheer magic, the downstairs galleries at the Kerry County Museum transform into the Festive Hall for Christmas. This is our most popular family and primary school event of the year and it is fully booked out. Please note that the Archaeology Hall and the Medieval Experience will be closed from November 2021 until January 2021 to facilitate this event. Visitors to the Museum can still access our exhibitions on the top floor: Casement in Kerry: A Revolutionary Journey, the Tom Crean Polar Room, the Main Gallery, as well as “Nostalgia” a temporary art exhibition by local artists and “Wah-Na-Be!”, a fabulous music video and exhibit by talented students from St John of God, Kerry Services/Skills4Life (MTU).

Please note that from Saturday 27th November until the Museum re-opens in January 2022, our regular exhibition opening hours are Tuesdays to Fridays from 10am until 5pm; last admission is at 4pm.
