About Galway City Museum

Located near the mouth of the River Corrib, the Galway City Museum focuses on showcasing the history, culture and traditions of the proud city of Galway. Its permanent exhibitions take you all the way back to prehistoric Galway, medieval times and the Galway Hooker. You’ll find regularly changing temporary exhibitions, which have previously highlighted Irish artist, Jack B Yeats, and the heritage of Galway’s people, boats and water lifestyle.

Immerse yourself in Galway’s history by participating in one of the regular projects or workshops, such as colouring and activity sheets for the kids, informative guided tours and research groups. You can also time your visit for one of the numerous events, from interactive sea workshops to live performances.

After exploring the museum, duck into the on-site The Kitchen Cafe for gourmet local produce and fresh coffee accompanied by Spanish Arch views. The museum can easily be combined with a visit to the nearby Fisheries Watchtower Museum or Hall of the Red Earl.

Getting there

Galway City Museum is an easy 500-metre walk from the centre of Galway and is surrounded by several public parking lots. You can walk there in just over 10 minutes from the Galway Ceannt train station.
