Kerry County Museum is currently not open to the public but why don’t you have a look at our online resources? We have object-based activities for teachers and home schooling, colouring sheets based on our exhibitions and collections, museum publications and articles written by Museum staff and volunteers and a day-by-day virtual dig based on the recent excavation and conservation of Killaclohane Portal Tomb, near Milltown, County Kerry.  If you are a teacher or educator and would like us to send you more information please email education@kerrymuseum.ie. We might be under lockdown but we are here for you! Watch this space as we are adding more over the coming days. Following online resources are available to download here:
