The Nenagh Heritage, Genealogy Centre and Museum. The Nenagh Heritage Centre is located in two stone Georgian buildings, built in 1840-1842 as the Governor's House and Gatehouse of an extensive Gaol complex for North Tipperary.

Nenagh Heritage Centre is located just a short walk from Nenagh town centre in County Tipperary. The Museum is housed in an interesting mid-19th-century building which was the County Gaol Governor's House for North Tipperary.

There are numerous exhibitions at the Nenagh Heritage centre including: a model of the North Tipperary Gaol, a recreated schoolroom from 1913 Ireland, a recreation of the original kitchen from the North Tipperary Gaol, dating from the mid 1800's and an Irish Dairy, which shows the stages of butter-making and the various utensils used in Irish farming life.

The Heritage Centre Gallery houses rotating art, craft, photography and information exhibitions from the Tipperary area.
