Displays include a few objects from Cork’s ancient past—including an Iron Age helmet and some of the oldest tools ever discovered in Ireland—but it’s strongest when it comes to the traditional crafts made in the city during the 19th and 20th centuries, including silverware and intricate lace from the Victorian period.
