One of the most complete collections of folk, farming and rural life in Ireland. The collection covers a broad range of items relating to farming, rural crafts, industries and country life.

 

The Irish Agricultural Museum, which is situated alongside Johnstown Castle in Wexford, is appropriately located in the original farm buildings. It houses a very large collection of lovingly restored farm machinery such as tractors, carts, threshing machines and dairy equipment and the most recent acquisition, a 1915 Aveling and Porter steam roller. The large display of Irish country objects and furniture gives a real insight into rural life from the turn of the 18th century until the middle of the 20th century.

In 2015, Teagasc selected The Irish Heritage Trust to revive and safeguard this very important Castle and Museum. The first step of this new relationship is to create an exciting new visitor centre which will open in 2017. This will link the enchanting Johnstown Castle with the Agricultural Museum providing the visitor with a much more holistic experience.
