Galway City Museum

Standing on the banks of the River Corrib and adjacent to the Spanish Arch, the Galway City Museum explores the rich archaeology, history, and heritage of Galway. The museum hosts a mix of permanent and touring exhibits spanning a range of interests.

On the ground floor you’ll find exhibits covering Prehistoric and Medieval times with a fantastic range of artefacts and interactive displays. The first floor explores the social history of Galway through the years through exhibits such as Cinema: Galway goes to the pictures, Dancehall Days and The Galway Hooker. A new exhibition, Galway & the Great War now features on the First Floor Gallery. On the second floor there is the new Sea Science Exhibit, which consists of fun and informative displays for all the family, covering marine topics and issues relating to the Galway coastline.

After you’ve toured the exhibits, stop by the café for refreshments. From the Second Floor Galleries you’ll be treated to some of the best views in Galway City.
