    Embark on a captivating journey through time at the heart of the Viking Triangle in Ireland's Ancient East.

    As you step inside Waterford Treasures Medieval Museum, you're transported back to the Middle Ages, where tales of knights and kings unfold before your eyes through interactive displays and immersive exhibits. Visitors are led underneath the building into centuries-old vaults, where the museum boasts an impressive collection of artefacts, including the only complete, pre-reformation set of cloth of gold vestments in Europe.

    From intricately carved stone sculptures to delicate pottery, each object within the museum tells a story of the city's vibrant past. One of the highlights is the Great Charter Roll of Waterford, a rare document dating back to 1372, granting the city its rights and privileges. But perhaps the most iconic feature of the museum is the 13th century Choristers' Hall, a beautifully preserved medieval chamber, where visitors can roam and marvel at the original prehistoric stonework. Waterford Treasures Medieval Museum offers a glimpse into the island’s rich tapestry of medieval mysteries and promises to leave a lasting impression.
