Down County Museum
Down County Museum information
Downhill from Down Cathedral is Down County Museum , housed in the town’s restored 18th-century jail. In a former cell block at the back are models of some of the prisoners once incarcerated there, and details of their sad stories. Displays cover the story of the Norman conquest of Down, but the biggest exhibit of all is outside – a short signposted trail leads to the Mound of Down , a good example of a Norman motte and bailey.
