Although we've been to Monaghan twice in the last three years we never considered visiting the museum until this time around. Very glad we finally took the time! The displays were exceptional/captivating very informative for those interested in Irish history. Front desk staff very friendly and helpful.

The museum contains all the local history to learn from. It is in a central location to the town, and regularly open to the public, groups and school children. I found it loaded with information, artifacts and pictures.
