Limerick City Museum, renamed the Jim Kemmy Municipal Museum, won the first Gulbenkian Award in 1992.

Its comprehensive displays illustrate the long and varied history of Limerick City and its surrounding area.

Situated in this historic part of the city, the buildings in Castle Lane were built in 1998 and are meant to represent the styles of building found in Limerick in the past.

The Museum is in the warehouse style building at the front of the lane while further down the row are recreations of brick fronted Georgian houses with so called 'Dutch Billy' roofs, a low cage work (timber-framed) house and a medieval tavern.

The award winning museum collection includes civic antiquities, Stone and Bronze Ages and Medieval artefacts, beautiful examples of Limerick lace, a trades history display and a currency display.

Owned and run by Limerick City Council, the museum was renamed the Jim Kemmy Municipal Museum in honour of the local politician, former mayor and TD, in 2000.
