Revamped Munster Experience Museum Now Open

Revamped Munster Experience Museum Now Open

Following its refurbishment and relocation to the Fan Zone Plaza at Thomond Park, the new Munster Experience Museum was officially opened by Minister Michael Ring on Sunday.

Mr. Ring, Minister of State at the Department of Transport & Tourism, was joined by a number of dignitaries – including President of the Munster Branch Mick Goggin, Deputy Mayor of Limerick Maria Byrne, Councillor Kieran O'Hanlon, Suzanne Trehy of Failte Ireland and Finance Minister Michael Noonan – at the opening ceremony which took place before Munster’s Champions Cup clash against Sale Sharks.

The experience provides a fascinating insight into the history and heritage of Munster Rugby and includes interactive content to be enjoyed by both young and old.

New interactive displays allow you the chance to 'be the commentator' and have your action shot taken alongside Paul O'Connell, Simon Zebo, Felix Jones and Conor Murray, after which you can send both your commentary and action shot directly to your e-mail.

In recognising the devotion of supporters throughout the seasons, Munster Rugby sent a call out to all supporters, to share their favourite #MunsterMemories. Following a massive response these memories are now intertwined in the tribal motif that runs throughout the museum.

Featured #MunsterMemories include:

@lindymoll
#MunsterMemories – Stepping off the train in Lille, April '01 and being in awe at the amount of Munster support. That's when the affair began!

@niamhieobrien
#MunsterMemories – Doing a heavily pregnant version of the victory dance when Strings scored 'that try' in Cardiff '06 and waking my sleeping toddler twins

@astrantiaroma
#MunsterMemories A stormy mucky night at Thomond but such great atmosphere when Munster beat Australia in 2010
