Located in Ireland, the Waterford Medieval Museum is a modern building with an ancient history locked away inside. It is not just treasures of the medieval world inside but the medieval architecture that the building has been fused with that make it special.

The modern design of the exterior gives off the appearance of a stack of books ready to fall over. Once you walk inside, your eyes will be fixed on the medieval stone work of ruined doorways and ancient tunnels that are located around the modern feel of the new building.

The museum has been designed to fit as a perfect puzzle piece between pre-existing buildings. This fusion of old and new is a great cultural sight when you are traveling to Ireland and want a historical touch to your trip.
