Steam Museum & Lodge Park Walled Garden

Museum in Straffan

The history of steam power and its role in the development of industry is told at this museum, housed in a former church. Along with various models, there are six 19th-century steam engines that once served in breweries, factories and ships; they're occasionally fired up for demonstrations. Next door, an 18th-century walled garden displays traditional fruit trees, flowers and formal plantings.
