Cavan County Museum
These days the town is best known as the home of the Cavan County Museum, located inside a former convent. Highlights of the impressive collection include a huge array of 18th to 20th century costumes and folk items and relics from the Stone, Bronze, Iron and Middle Ages, including the Celtic Killycluggin stone and the three-faced Corleck Head, as well as a 1,000-year-old boat excavated from Lough Errill.
However, without doubt the main draw is the recreation of a WW1 trench. Children and adults alike just love this experience, which offers a powerfully realistic idea of what it must have been like to be dug-in during wartime. There are loads of interactive fun and realistic props, to go with the fascinating local artefacts on display. There is lots for kids to see and do, and a wealth of learning for those keen on history, particularly from the war. What’s more, the staff are really friendly and helpful. Then to round the day off, why not take a walk around the gardens followed by a tea of coffee in the café while the kids leap around in the playground? A great way to spend the day!
