The Irish Agricultural Museum is imaginatively staged in the old estate farm buildings at Johnstown Castle near Wexford town. The displays occupy over 1,600 square metres. Visitors can enjoy beautifully restored tractors, carts, ploughs, trending machines, stationary engines and dairy equipment. You can visit the ‘Great Famine’ exhibition which vividly reveals what life was like before, during and after the famine. There are traditional trades set in recreated workshops such as the cooper, blacksmith and wheelwright. The Irish Agricultural Museum houses the largest display of country furniture in Ireland. They also have a ‘red tractor’ explorer quiz for children.
