star rating  Out of the tourist season we had the museum to ourselves on a rainy weekday afternoon, so it made the experience that bit more special.
It's small enough to get around in c. an hour and the information is provided in an interesting and digestible format so we left feeling we had been well educated about Michael Collins and the key role he played in the Irish War of Independence.
The gentleman on duty in reception was also super helpful.
Definitely worth a visit.
