MEDIEVAL MUSEUM WATERFORD
The magnificent curved façade of the warm butter-colored stone building draws in the visitor. The eye-catching giant sculpture on the gable was inspired by a tiny 13th century belt mount found in Waterford. It is Ireland’s only purpose-built medieval museum and the only building on the island to incorporate two medieval chambers, the 13th century Choristers’ Hall and the 15th century Mayor’s Wine Vault.
This striking new building reveals the story of Waterford through the middle Ages and visitors are wowed as they go underneath the new building into centuries old vaults.
On display are the magnificent Cloth of Gold vestments the only complete pre-reformation set to survive in Europe. It's home to some internationally important treasures including the only complete set of medieval High Mass Vestments to survive in Northern Europe as well as the Waterford Charter Roll which was viewed by Queen Elizabeth II on her visit to Ireland.
Don't miss the stunning Heavens' Embroidered Cloths, Waterford's cloth-of-gold 15th century vestments.
The Epic tour is a full costumed re-enactment brought to life by Waterford Treasures on-site team of actors and is a unique family friendly addition to the tourism offering in Waterford.
