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.
