The Cobh Museum in Ireland is a charming and informative museum housed in the former Scots Presbyterian Church, an impressive 19th-century building. The museum is located in the picturesque coastal town of Cobh, known as the last port of call of the Titanic. Founded in 1973, the museum is dedicated to the rich history and culture of Cobh and the surrounding region. It offers a variety of exhibits that portray the town's history from the Great Famine to the present day. Special attention is given to the Titanic and the Lusitania, two famous ships that have a deep connection to Cobh. In addition to maritime exhibits, the museum also contains artefacts from the everyday life of the people in Cobh, including photographs, postcards and personal items. It also offers a wealth of information about emigration from Ireland, particularly during the Great Famine when many people emigrated to the New World via Cobh. The Cobh Museum is a fascinating place that offers visitors a deep insight into the history and culture of Cobh and Ireland.
