This was my third visit to the Medieval Mile Museum. It’s a unique place, where you can learn how a specific historical society lived and died. Medieval Kilkenny was a special place and this museum teaches us of the lives of many, rich and poor who lived there.

Smart, funny, and full of interesting history and engaging stories. The tour went smoothly and included many suggestions for further exploration after the tour.

Thoroughly enjoyed this museum. We enjoyed seeing the process of the archaeology that was done to uncover much of the contents of the museum.
