Having visited this museum I find some of the negative reviews interesting - it's all about expectations. It's a small museum which is reflective of the small cost to get in. From my perspective it was a little treasure trove with a good array of...More

When one has a great experience it is almost always because of meeting an enthusiast. Harris Moore is an absolute enthusiast for Celtic Prehistoric items. The Wooly Mammoth skull and Antlers, the Cave Bear Skeleton, and the Nautilus fossils stand out for me, and Harris...More

If you get a chance to drive the Slea Head trail don't pass this little museum by. It has a terrific display of assorted prehistoric artifacts (including the amazing mamouth skull) and a great gift shop. Well worth the stop.
