Galway City Museum

  • Does Galway City have a museum?

    Yes. Galway City Museum is located beside the Spanish Arch on the banks of the river Corrib in Galway City.

    Galway City Museum was founded in the mid-1970s and was originally located in Comerford House beside the Spanish Arch.

    In April 2007 a new purpose built museum building was opened, behind the site of the old museum at Comerford House. The new Galway City Museum project was the initiative of Galway City Council to advance the cultural and heritage life of Galway City.

    Galway City Museum collects, preserves and displays materials relating to the history of Galway City; Archaeology, Art, Geology, Natural History, Social, Political and Industrial History and Folk-life.

    The museums opening hours are Tuesday to Saturday from 10am to 5pm and admission is Free.
