Galway City Museum is a collecting institution – this means that it collects objects and material that relate to Galway, the city and it’s people, past and present. The collection currently comprises over 1,000 objects, most of which have been kindly donated by the people of Galway over the past 40 years. Part of the collection is on display and you will see it as you navigate through the museum. Those objects not on display form our reserve collection, and are kept in our stores.
