As part of International Museum week, The National Famine Museum | Strokestown Park was delighted to extend an invitation to the local communities to come and have a sneak peek of the newly reimagined and redeveloped National Famine Museum.
This was the first opportunity for the local communities to see the development since the work began a little over a year before.
The Local Museum Day was met with great excitement as over six hundred people joined the various tours throughout the day.
We would like to thank everyone who attended and spread the word for their support, and we look forward to welcoming everyone back to the National Famine Museum | Strokestown Park.
The Palladian House at Strokestown Park is still undergoing some essential works and reopens when the attraction opens to the public including the contemporary visitor centre with the café and retail area. Funding for the project came from €3.75 million under Fáilte Ireland’s Grants Scheme for Large Tourism Projects 2016-2020 and €1.25 million funding from the owners of Strokestown Park House, Westward Holdings Ltd, in partnership with the Irish Heritage Trust.
