Overview

Mythical sea god Manannan guides you through this interactive museum which focuses on the Isle of Man's rich Celtic, Viking and maritime past. Discover life sized reconstructions of Celtic roundhouses, join the crew of the Odin’s Raven on a Viking longship as it returns from the battle of Clontarf, or find out what life was life in a Viking longhouse. You’ll also hear about the magnificent stone crosses dotted around the Island’s landscape and find out where you can still see them. Explore 19th Century Peel with a walk around the quayside, complete with traditional sights and smells from the Manx kipper yard, and uncover the importance of the sea to the lives of the people on the Isle of Man. During your journey from past to present you’ll also come face to face with characters telling you stories and superstitions from the Island’s past. An attraction not to be missed!

I have visited this museum a number of times over the years, and whilst each trip was unique and always a learning experience it is sad that parts of the museum have been let go. The very first story in the round house with the...More

This is an absolutely SUPERB museum. It is PACKED. It is so enjoyable because there are streets and quaysides and Celtic homes recreated - amongst other things. It's the sort of museum that caters for all ages - I can't recommend it enough. And Lesley...More

Currently visiting the Isle of Man, so I went on a bus ride from Douglas to see what there is at Peel. First suggestion is that a rainy day might not be the best time to visit. Definitely isn’t. Second suggestion is that if you...More

A fascinating history of the island. The films are fascinating and the rooms are set up really well. It is clearly looked after and updated regularly. If you want something to eat the pub across the road serves good food.

Had visited in the past.One or two changes have taken place. The whole set up leads you through a story including the way that they used to live at the time. They accept National Trust cards.
