Welcome to Lee Valley- Johnny Timmy Johnny's Museum
Johnny Timmy Johnny's Museum
The 'Johnny Timmy Johnny's' Museum (also known as 'The Store of Memories' museum) has now been passed on to the 3rd generation of the family and is run by Timmy Johnny's Granddaughter Dorothy. It contains a wealth of historical items from Scythes used for cutting corn in the local fields, to the History of the family which goes back centuries. We also see an antique Switchboard. Many Pictures line the walls including some of President Kennedy who was much loved in Ireland, previous Popes, Dorothy's Grandfather Timmy Johnny himself.
We also see an extremely old ledger for the store, dating back to 1917. And some shopping lists for local customers. Beautiful antique typewriters and furniture is dotted around the once busy shop, bringing you back to times past.
