This is a state-of-the-art visitor experience in the civic centre of Clonmel, Co. Tipperary in the heart of Ireland’s Ancient East. Completely re-imagined and redesigned, the new Museum brings Tipperary’s rich hidden history vividly to life through characters, stories and is one of the largest museum collections in Ireland.
Tipperary Museum’s collection was first founded in the 1940’s and was the first purpose-built Local Authority County Museum in Ireland.
Expect to be surprised and intrigued by what you find! Immerse yourself in stories of castles and conquests, courage, superstition, murder and death. Explore tales of two worlds, from rural life in 19th century Tipperary to the Big Houses on the Suir Valley. Come face to face (literally) with Oliver Cromwell. Learn about one man and his boat and meet a host of heroes from the world of sports and entertainment. This multi-sensory experience is a must-see on your journey into Ireland’s Ancient East.
This award-winning Museum is dedicated to education and lifelong learning through engaging inhouse and visiting exhibitions, workshops, schools and community projects. Our mission is to bring our services out to our diverse communities and support cultural programming across Tipperary.

We are currently displaying black & white photographs from 1977 - 1983. As the weeks and months roll on, we'll update images from these years and add additional years from 1984 - 1987 and so on, up to the 90s. You can help us identify people in the photographs by clicking on an image and entering a message (these are sent to us privately). You can also visit us in the Museum to see the current exhibition in person.
