Initially established as a personal collection, the 2000-plus items are from the private collection of the late John and Gertrude Hunt. Originally located at the University of Limerick the museum was later moved to its own premises in the Customs House of Limerick. One of the most lenient museums in the whole of Ireland you are allowed to open drawer and touch some of the artefacts.

Highlights Include:

  • A coin said to be from the collection of coins  given to Judas to betray Jesus.
  • Picasso Paintings and articles
  • Paintings by Renoir

The Hunt Museum is known for its brilliant collection and is a global name for historians and archaeologists worldwide.
