Cobh Museum page banner

Cobh Museum is situated overlooking Cork Harbour.
Formerly known as Queenstown, Cobh has a long association with emigration and was the last port of call for the Titanic.
The exhibitions reflect the cultural, social and maritime history of Cobh and the Great Island.

There is a small genealogical reference section in the museum where visitors can do their own research.

Cobh Museum is closed to the public until March 2015.
