Owner description: The role of Carlow County Museum is to collect, preserve, conserve, document and display the history and material culture of the county. County Museums are significant in that they are a home for a county's many historic treasures and they become centres for research, education as well as maintaining high standards of collections care. In Ireland an official County Museum is one that is operated and funded by a Local Authority. Currently there are thirteen County Museums throughout Ireland. The County Museum was developed in partnership with the Carlow Historical and Archaeological Society. The Society has been collecting artifacts and archives relating to all aspects of County Carlow's history since the late 1960's. The Society opened a museum in 1974 and it was relocated in 1979 to the former Theatre of the Town Hall, a space provided by Carlow Town Council.The Society will retain a role in the development of the County Museum, through the medium of a Museum Board that will oversee the strategic development and devise the County Museum's policies.

I love Carlow Museum. It has all the history of Carlow Town and Co. Carlow. It has free addmission. Its opening hours are great. The staff and volunteers are brillent. Well worth a vist. It is located in the Old Presentation Covent. Entry can be gained by Tullow Street or Collage Street.
