Good if you're into that sort of thing, but don't expect a huge museum, it's big for a house though.

It's a cool insight into the history and times of Collins, we spent about an hour there, well spent.

This is a real addition to the local history scene. The museum focuses on Clonakilty's part in the 1798 Rising and on Michael Collins. The exhibits are interesting and the information panels well designed. Well worth a visit. My one quibble is that there is...More

Very good displays but a bit disjointed. More about the whole Irish history rather than about the man himself. There was also quite a lot of duplication in the information. On the whole though, we enjoyed it. Allow about an hour.More
