TAKE a magical walk back through time in the historic wonderland that is Cavan County Museum!
This exciting and vibrant museum takes history off the page and brings it to life with larger-than-life outdoor exhibitions such as the World War I Trench Experience and Battle of the Somme Installation, giving you the opportunity to walk around the largest replica trench in Ireland or Britain and experience how it felt to fight in ‘the war to end all wars’. It’s so realistic, you can practically feel the bullets flying overhead, so make sure you keep low!!
The 1916 Rising Experience Exhibition evokes the chaos and violence of the Easter Rising with a giant replica of the GPO and a walk-though tunnel, mirroring the cramped conditions endured by the rebels.
Indoors, Cavan County Museum is a treasure trove of fascinating artefacts from our past, such as ancient arrowheads that our ancestors used to hunt, the mysterious three-faced Corleck Head, and the ancient, cursed Killycluggin Stone.
After touring the Museum’s indoor and outdoor exhibitions visitors can enjoy a stroll around The Nuns’ Walk, refreshments in our Coffee Shop or browse around the Museum’s Craft Shop.
Cavan County Museum, Ballyjamesduff, is open Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from 10am – 5pm.
