The museum delivers a wonderful interpretation of the story of Knock. The story of the investigation of the witnesses to the apparition is sensibly told. The exhibits of rooms and items of days long gone brings a heritage dimension to the experience. The audio aids...More

What a simple easy way to explain the history of a rural village in Ireland. From late 1879 onwards. The audio guide made it suitable for the children. It’s very simple but cleverly put together. I loved the blacksmith & cottage. It costs about €4/5...More

The museum tells the full story of this lovely place and the history behind it, a very low entrance fee, with earpieces provided to give the visitor the very best experience.

Although maybe for the more religiously observant, it provided great context to the Basilica and the last visit by the Pope. Worthwhile visiting and having a cup of coffee and something to eat

The museum is a triumph of research. It provides a background which contextualises the apparition of 1879. The witness statements, artifacts from the period and reconstructions make it easier to understand the times in which the events took place.

Well done overview of the Knock apparitions. The many personally written 19th century letters from around the world testifying to miraculous healing were fascinating reading.

I really enjoyed the museum in Knock. I thought it was beautifully done and really, really interesting. It combines a museum of country life style exhibit with the history of Knock Shrine and of course the story of the apparition night itself. There's an interesting...More

Don't leave Knock without visiting the museum! It's just brilliant! All exhibits are very well laid out and they follow the story of the apparition of Our Lady to the current day changes and renovations. The audio tour is so informative, talks you through each...More
