Take a stroll through the Kingdom’s rich history at Kerry County Museum and you will find plenty of activities for all ages. Solve a medieval murder mystery in our new interactive gallery ‘Bone Investigators’, and learn the tricks of the trade used by archaeologists and historians. Play like a Viking in our Museum Gallery and defend your king in the board game hnefeltafl. Or why not plot St Brendan’s route across the Atlantic? See if you can guess the origin of Ireland’s animals, discover a Stone Age survival kit, and try on Tom Crean’s Antarctic clothes. Find out what life was like in Tralee in 1450 as you stroll through the recreated streets and houses in the Medieval Experience. Discover what people wore and ate and even how they got rid of their rubbish. Special sound and odour effects make this an experience to remember. Remind yourself of the more recent past by looking at the photographs in ‘Kerry Lives’, our new exhibition showing life in the Kingdom from the 1950s to the 1970s.  For further info see
