This is a free museum in central Enid but is has a blackout period in the middle of the day. Good for county history.

As we were staying in Ennis, we thought we should visit and we were not disappointed. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The exhibitions were really interesting and well presented, As a bonus it was free to enter but I would gladly have paid

Very interesting material and displays about Ennis town and Clare county. What's more, it's all free, no charge. Located in town centre, on Arthur's Row lane, just off O'Connell Square

What a surprising museum! we visited because the admission was free and the weather was awful, but ended up enjoying the exhibition and learning a bit about Ennis and its history.

Very nice small museum dedicated to the history of Clare. I was provided with some books for free by the staff on Roger Casement and Clare hurling and overall I thought this was a very good museum.
