Trip Planner: Europe / Ireland / Western Ireland / Province of Connacht / County Galway / Galway / Galway City Museum
Discover Galway's past at Galway City Museum, where objects from pre-history to present day fill the galleries of this coastal complex. The maritime industries that helped build the city take a place of honor in the museum's exhibits. Because farming was another way of life that influenced the city, a collection of farm equipment shares space with industrial artifacts. Admission to the museum is free, and its location on the seashore next to the Spanish Arch makes it a good stopping point on a walking tour of the city and coastline.

Galway City Museum Reviews
This is a good city museum that provides a good history of the town and area. Very well laid out with some very interesting exhibits. more »
Although it is not a large museum, it was well worth the time to visit. It offered a perfect balance of information regarding the cultural and historical aspects of the city as well as Ireland herself... more »
Good for children! A little bit less for adults It was a bit short and below my expectations. But if you don't have anything else to do I guess it's good. The view from the upper floor is nice. I would suggest going if you have children!
Bigger than you would expect. Easily spend two hours in there. Really interesting history and fun areas for kids too. If you have kids I'd reccomend starting at top to bottom. This will keep the kids entertained easier. I would be nice of there were some more audio description or even music in certain areas.
