A new exhibition with interactive screens has been installed in the Tholsel, Drogheda Tourist Office. The stylish new touch screen display introduces both locals and visitors alike to the joys of exploring Drogheda and the Boyne Valley.
Drogheda is a magnificent medieval town and it truly is the Gateway to the Boyne Valley. But all of that heritage and history is not easy to explain in a mere soundbite. The Council wanted to develop a beautiful, informative and helpful exhibition that would help visitors of all ages make the most of their visit to the area. The project has been jointly funded by Fáilte Ireland and Louth County Council.
The permanent exhibition focuses on five key themes: Ancient Secrets, Beating Hearts, Conflict and Power, Holy Ground and Beauty and Romance. Each section introduces the history of the region under that title and the things to explore see and do. The interactive touch screens give an opportunity for children to explore and play with the little hidden gems on screen. This innovative exhibition is a wonderful new addition to the tourism offering in the Boyne Valley.
The new exhibition also showcases the heritage of The Tholsel itself, which has been home to the Tourist Office since October 2010. It incorporates a display of historic artefacts from the renowned Millmount Museum. Irelands Ancient East within Drogheda and the Boyne Valley will appeal to the culturally curious traveller. The Exhibition has therefore incorporated local arts, crafts, literature and music of the region into the exhibition to help visitors understand the depth of the cultural offering in the region.
The Tholsel is a jewel in Drogheda’s crown and Louth County Council are delighted to spearhead its regeneration. It is a suitably prestigious location for the Drogheda’s Tourist Office and we hope that both locals and visitors alike will enjoy this new and interactive facility. Come and visit the Exhibition today and then explore the beauty of Drogheda and the Boyne Valley.
