Enjoy the Museum Visitor Experience including a welcome video and wander through the Museum exhibits of needlework and much more. Marvel at the original and contemporary Mountmellick Embroidery and the dynamic women involved since 1825, ensuring it is very much a living craft and part of Irelands Intangible Cultural Heritage.
