Looking for ancestors is always a challenge and when the archive librarian was not available we were given instructions to the address of a lady living around the corner from the museum, who may be able to help us.

The main museum was just the same as when my husband lived in Armagh about 40 years ago! However they do have galleries that change and they were interesting. Staff very friendly

A small, neo-classical building overlooking the Mall, this museum was small but delightful. Most of the exhibits are truly local to the area- rocks, Neolithic artefacts, militaria, Viking silver, but the costumes were particularly special.

A small museum in a beautiful building. A bit of something for all interests. The archeological exhibits were some of the best I've seen. Having heard about the Armagh train disaster, we found the details in the Railway section. Period costumes are there, as are...More
