Surprising to come across this museum in the village of Foxford and to learn that Admiral Brown, an Irishman from Foxford, was the founder of the Argentine Navy. The museum does a good job at bringing his heroic story to life and the staff are very friendly. Well worth a visit. Why not combine it with the Foxford Woolen Mills... More

I had no idea that Admiral Brown from Ireland founded the Argentinian Navy, until I accidentally walked a short distance from the woollen mill. This is so inspiring, with a video about his life and conquests and information and gifts. Helpful staff and highly recommended, especially for teens who may need inspiration.

It's a small exhibition space and there were three sets of people... More

Visited late in the evening, and firstly, the curator was very welcoming, friendly and helpful. The age range of our group was from 13 to adult, and everyone found it enjoyable. Some fantastic artifacts on show, and a lot of information well presented.

That was what the two "locals" said to me when I tried to get in so all I could do was peer in through the window like a little boy at a sweet shop. That said it looked very interesting if your interested in the Argentine Navy and how a "wee" boy from Mayo became an Admiral. Had it been... More

A wonderful museum just beside the Foxford Woollen Mills. This museum is well worth a visit and a great tribute to this wonderful man. The glass case is full of wonderful interesting pieces.
