Located in the grounds of Turlough Park Estate, the Museum comprises the estate’s original house, which is in the High Victorian Gothic style and has been fully restored, as well as a purpose-built Exhibition Gallery. The extensive grounds also house an artificial lake and the site of a castle that dates from Anglo-Norman times.
The innovative exhibits on show at the Museum tell the story of Irish country life between 1850 and 1950 with particular emphasis on domestic life, agriculture, fishing and hunting, clothing and textiles, furniture and fittings, trades and crafts, transport, leisure, and religion.
