The mission of this museum is to collect, preserve and display material relating to the history and heritage of Galway City. It is our aim to operate the museum to the highest conservational, ethical and professional standards possible. To provide a platform from which the visiting public can experience and interact with the varying representations of Galway city, past and present. To provide an atmosphere which welcomes all sections of the community and encourages debate and diversity in its representations. To be a centre of learning and cultural enrichment for the people of Galway City and for the wider visiting public both on a local and international level.
