Glenview Folk Museum in Ballinamore is a lovely exhibit of rural Irish heritage from the early part of the 20th century.
A full street scene has been fully reconstructed to give a real feel of 1930s Ireland. Shops are stocked and dressed as they would have been in the past and a large set of tradesmen’s tools on display are indicative of the skill and the ingenuity of past owners and communities.
This private collection of over 7000 items has a varied collection of household items from butter making equipment and everyday kitchen utensils to lamps and furniture. Their impressive array of farmyard equipment includes horse drawn agricultural machinery and a thrasher. Coins, ledgers, registers, posters, newspapers and other memorabilia from the era are also on display. It also holds the largest collection of egg cups in Ireland with over 4000 egg cups on display.
