    What to Expect
    Visit: Waterford Treasures Medieval Museum, Cathedral Square Viking Triangle, Waterford X91 K10E Ireland

    The Medieval Museum houses the 13th century Choristers Hall and the 15th century Mayor’s Wine Vault, in the heart of Waterford's Viking Triangle and is the only museum of its kind in Ireland and Europe that is built over two national monuments. This striking new building reveals the story of Waterford through the middle Ages and visitors are wowed as they go underneath the new building into centuries old vaults.

    On display are the magnificent Cloth of Gold vestments the only complete pre-reformation set to survive in Europe. It's the only complete set of medieval High Mass Vestments to survive in Northern Europe, which were lost for hundreds of years after they were hidden from Cromwell’s army in the floor of the then Christ Church Cathedral, the only piece of clothing to survive from King Henry VIII’s reign, the ‘Cap of Maintenance’, as well as the Great Charter Roll which was viewed by Queen Elizabeth II on her visit to Ireland.

    Take the tour with our costumed re-enactor, or use our multimedia handheld guide in English, French or German or just wander at your lesiure throughout the museum.

    We bought the combined Medieval Museum and Bishops Palace ticket which provided a guided tour of each. If we had it to do over we would have skipped Bishops Palace. The Medieval tour was excellent mostly due to our guide, Hannah. It was only her...More

    We lucked out and we’re the only two people on the 3:00pm Friday tour. The historical info was really interesting. There’s an amazing collection of artifacts. And the 4D video is really cool. Our tour guide was great!
