Join Fáilte Ireland certified tour guide Olha Orekhovska this Heritage Week for a guided tour of Kerry County Museum in Ukrainian. Olha has been a volunteer with Kerry County Museum since spring 2023 after completing the Kerry ETB Regional Tour guiding course with Distinction. Since then, Olha has facilitated guided tours and workshops for Kerry County Museum and she is also the project leader of the Museum Culture Club, a culture sharing initiative for the local community.

Kerry County Museum is located in the Ashe Memorial Hall adjacent to Tralee Town Park and offers a fascinating introduction to Kerry's distinctive culture and heritage. The museum's current special exhibition Casement in Kerry: A Revolutionary Journey, tells the story of Sir Roger Casement’s landing in Banna - one of the significant events of the Easter Rising to happen outside of Dublin. Countless artefacts on display in the Main Gallery illustrate the turbulent history and fascinating archaeology of the county.

Travel through the ages exploring the everyday objects Kerry people used as well as the treasures they cherished. Along the way are plenty of hands-on activities for all the family: Discover a Stone Age survival kit; play Viking chess; plot St Brendan’s route to America; guess the origin of Ireland’s animals and decipher a secret Ogham message. You can learn all about Tom Crean, Kerry’s famous Antarctic explorer, in the Tom Crean Polar Room. Become an archaeologist in the museum’s Archaeology Hall, an exciting tactile exhibition exploring the history beneath our feet.

Activities include a skeleton dig, inspecting a rotten Viking tooth and looking at medieval parasites under the microscope. Finally, travel back in time and relive life in Tralee in 1450 in the Museum's popular Medieval Experience. Dress up in costume and stroll through the reconstructed medieval streets and houses complete with the sounds and smells of the era - a treat for all the family.

We are delighted to offer guided tours in Ukrainian this Heritage Week.
