The museum had information about the local Heritage Walk through town, the Mourne Mountains, etc. Staff were super helpful. Bagnel's Castle doesn't exactly look like a castle, its more like a modern building that was built over a fortified (castle like) house but still pretty...More

From the outside it doesn't look like much-but inside is a very informative and interesting museum. The floors contain a lot of artifacts from around Newry as well as the history of the area.

There is a free conducted tour on most Sundays of the year. You are encouraged to book in advance and many of the most popular exhibitions are oversubscribed

Small but interesting museum. Didn't like the sign saying assistance with finding accomadation incurred £3 charge. Surely we should encourage people to stay in area. A coffee shop would be a bonus as you could easily spend a day here. Receptionist wasn't the most helpful...More

I took my granddaughter aged 7 here for an afternoon. She loved it as much as I did. She particularly loved being able to dress up in "older time" clothes, as she put it. The museum is full of local history. I particularly loved the...More
