Natives and newcomers: tales of the people of Kerry told in objects

Our Main Gallery is home to priceless archaeological objects, impressive life-size dioramas, exquisitely crafted models and informative wall displays that narrate the story of Kerry’s people and landscape from the earliest times up until the 20th Century.

Kerry County Museum holds in trust, collects and cares for artefacts related to the county of Kerry and its people. Our collection consists of approximately 4,000 artefacts dating from the stone age through to the late twentieth century. Each of these tells a story about the people of Kerry. The Museum actively collects suitable artefacts and these are usually acquired through donation or reporting of archaeological finds. More detailed information is available in the Archaeological Finds and Donations sections.
