Explore the Collections

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.

MUSEUM OPENING TIMES

In line with current government guidelines, Galway City Museum will be closed to the public until further notice. We will monitor the situation very closely to plan our re-opening.  Visitors can still explore the museum virtually at galwaycitymuseum.ie and stay updated on museum developments by following Galway City Museum on social media channels, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
 
If you have any queries about bookings please feel free to contact us on 091 532460 or museum@galwaycity.ie. Bookings for next number of weeks will be cancelled.
 
We would like to take this opportunity to appeal to you to please stay safe, stay at home and protect each other so that we can welcome you back again soon. With regard to Covid-19 the future is in all of our hands!
