Educational Programmes

Cork City Gaol & Radio Museum Experience

Both the Cork City Gaol Visit, and visits to The Radio Museum Experience, provide valuable sources for projects with emphasis on history & culture, 19th Century crime, punishment & social history, architecture, early broadcasting & media studies.

Currently we have Teacher Project Sheets for both primary and second level students.

The Gaol can occasionally, and with prior arrangement, be used by students of art, music and drama.

To request Teacher Project Sheets, or to obtain other specific project information email us at
