Waterford Museums

Waterford is blessed with an abundance of museums, castles and other locations of historical interest

Irish Silver Museum

Since the Viking period in Ireland, silver has been a most prized metal and a means of exchange. One of the seven precious metals of antiquity, silver has long enthralled and fascinated humans who fashioned it into beautiful and useful objects. Some of these objects in the museum feature the names and arms of their owners or unusual decorations and features – but all of them tell a story.

 

The Irish Museum of Time

The story of time – Ireland's first clock museum

We took a trip inside the newly opened – Irish Museum of Time in the Viking Triangle – The (Waterford Treasures) museum showcases 'the best of Irish technology going back to over 300 years – from the people responsible for inventing the groundbreaking, timekeeping instruments.It is the country's only horological museum and is now home to the oldest Irish longcase, table clocks and watches in the world. And the collection is not limited to Ireland – early European timepieces are also on display. This includes clocks and watches from Switzerland, Germany, France, Italy, Austria, the Netherlands, Russia, England and as far away as Japan.
