The themes and artefacts within the Museum reflect the social, political and cultural history of Co. Clare in the 19th century. Famine and Emigration, Landlords and Tenants, Music, Culture and a Traditional Way of Life are among its themes. Artefacts which are locally sourced are contained within display cabinets and provide a direct link to that period of history.

They vary from ledgers, diaries and documents, household items and utensils from workhouses, landlords houses and family homes, farm implements and fishing gear, musical instruments, schoolroom artefacts and roll books. This primary source material evokes a strong emotional response from visitors whose ancestors emigrated from Co. Clare in the post famine era.
