Fethard’s Folk Museum is now a top attraction. What started out as the mere satisfaction of a hobby and then developed into a centre of parochial curiosity, has now emerged to become one of Tipperary’s top tourist attractions. The Folk, Farm and Transport Museum in the town of Fethard now attracts some 10,000 visitors each year to its Cashel Road location. The centre is the brainchild of Christy and Margaret Mullins and it opened its doors for the first time on St. Patrick’s Day of 1983. Its impact was immediate and it managed to treble its amount of visitors within the first two years of its inception. More than twelve hundred exhibits are on display at the museum. The extension constructed at the rear of the building in the summer of 1984 , houses the hearses and horse-drawn carriages. The exhibits include a large selection of old bicycles such as penny farthings, boneshakers and ladies three wheelers: Victorian perambulators, cameras, laundry equipment and everyday household items used over a century ago.
