Medieval Museum – Treasures of Medieval Waterford

Currently ranked as the #3 visitor attraction in Waterford on, the award-winning Medieval Museum is situated between Cathedral Square and the Bishop’s Palace in the heart of the Viking Triangle.

The Medieval Museum incorporates the 13th century Choristers’ Hall and a 15th century wine vault and takes visitors back to the great age of faith and chivalry. This multi-award winning museum is a tribute to medieval life in Waterford.

The museum galleries feature some of the great treasures of medieval Ireland and Europe, including the unique 4 metre long illustrated Great Charter Roll of Waterford (1373) as well as the sumptuous cloth-of-gold vestments (1460).

The Medieval Museum was officially opened on Thursday, 28th March 2013, by An Taoiseach (Prime Minister of Ireland) Enda Kenny
