Irish Military War Museum
Collon, Co. Meath
Living History Museum and Family Park

This war museum offers a fascinating insight into Irish participants’ involvement in both World War I and World War II, as well as other military conflicts in world history.

It represents a distinctly non-political but ‘must see’ educational and historical resource for people of all ages, from right across the island of Ireland and beyond. See stunning detailed examples of trenches of World War I, as well as displays of the highly motorized conflict that was World War II. The museum also houses one of the finest collections of WWII Allied and Axis vehicles and deactivated weapons ever assembled in Ireland.

If you’ve ever wanted to learn how to drive a tank, this museum is for you!
