Limerick Museum has over 62,000 objects in its collection. Some are on display and the rest can be viewed on the online catalogue. The story of Limerick city and county is shown through its objects, from Stone Age axes to 1916 Rising medals.
Among the unusual items are the 450-year old mummified Ireton’s Cat; a 3 billion-year-old fragment from the largest meteorite shower that ever fell in Ireland (which occurred in 1813) and two World War II gas masks, that fortunately never had to be used.
Open Monday to Friday
Henry Street, Limerick City
