Entered here by pure chance. Had never heard of the place. It was really good quality. We had visited museums in New York and the quality of the exhibits here were very bit as good. Obviously not as many as NY. Especially liked the mock up of an old cinema. Brought back memories of my wife and I going to... 更多
i enjoyed going to this museum it was a couple of years back i was ther but i can remember i enjoyed myself and i gave it a very good rating i would reccomend it for a family going away on a day out.
Its free and indoors - the only two aspects of the museum that are worth promoting. Otherwise I left feeling utterly disappointed by my visit. The museum is text book 'how not to design and run a museum'. They could do so much better. Firstly the building - looks like a small town shopping centre squished into the most historic... 更多
Great exhibits on Galway and it's place in European trade and the wars of the British Empire. Traditional Irish boats 'currachs' on display. The museum affords visitors a great view of the bay and the river Corrib.
This FREE museum was interesting and tells you a lot about the history of Galway City. It also has a little bit for the kids (big and small). For a place with no price tag, we found it a good way to spend the first hour or two of our day in Galway. The Kitchen restaurant off the lobby is... 更多
walked around for about 30 minutes because the free walking tour of Galway never happened (the guides sadly never showed) so we figured we would try to make the most of the day. saw the "spanish arch" and this was right near it. Some interesting history installations but not a whole lot to do.
Not the biggest or most comprehensive museums, but a good way to spend a little bit of time. I took my grandfather here on a trip and we both enjoyed the Great War exhibition and as a former jazz singer he enjoyed the music memorabilia. there's a lovely view of the city from the top floor as well and always... 更多
Nice displays showing the history of Galway and the Galway Bay An original "hooker ship" is suspended from the ceiling. Nothing overwhelming just nice displays and interesting facts to learn
A good central location and free admission. We found it very interesting and good to see Padraig O Connor again after all these years. Good for kids too lots to see and interact with,
We popped into this museum as we couldn't find much else to do in Galway! It was free so not much to lose! Everything is exhibited very well and it has some fantastic views of the waterfront area. The kids enjoyed the interactive bit on the top floor. Never saw any staff though and we weren't welcomed in.
Nearly missed this museum as the entrance is not easy to spot but it was well worth a visit. Takes you on a journey through the history of Galway and local areas and has special exhibitions on show. It has a lift for easy assess and a cafe in the same building. Very friendly staff.
