Michael Collins Centre Museum
We custom make the presentations to suit the needs and ages of the students and we like to discuss the content with the teachers or tutors before the visit. The dramatic storytelling style of our slideshows always keep students engaged and they get to see at close quarters artefacts, weapons and equipment from the time of Michael Collins.
We find that the outside exhibits, the firing squad execution yard and recreation of the Béal na Blá ambush site as especially popular with students.
What also works really well for school and college groups, is our Combination Tour, which is a visit to the museum followed by a guided visit to some of the sites on the ground. Students get an over view of the history, with everything being put into context at the museum and then they get to stand in the places where the history happened. Groups often have a 90 minute presentation at the museum and then travel to Woodfield, Kilmichael ambush site and Béal na Bla.
What Our Visitors Think
Visited Michael collins Centre castleview with a group of children and adults on a school trip. A visitor attraction situated on a hill with panoramic views over the local countryside. Timothy and Delores gave us a great welcome and Timothy’s, passion for history and folklore had us all listening . We arrived at 11 and reluctantly left at 2pm. The children learned about history and heroes around the fireside while the bastable cake baked, the same way their ancestors learned about their history many years ago.
Everyone had a super day. Thank you both.
I went here with my class today and i have to say it was amazing. When we arrived tim our tour guide showed us the way down to the museum. Then he told us some great stories and we then went outside to look at the model cars which we had great fun climbing on. Then he showed us some pictures and videos. Afterwards we got to pretend that we were a fireing squad pretended to shoot our teacher. All in all it was a great day and I would highly recommend it for everyone and anyone.
