Museums in County Mayo in the West of Ireland


The Museums of Mayo play a central role in the collection, preservation and exhibition of aspects and artefacts, which belong to our past and represent an invaluable resource for present and future generations.

In Mayo's museums the Irish rural life is very well highlighted in all its aspects and the artefacts displayed and the modern visual aids give visitors some understanding of particularly important themes such as Rural Economy, Famine, Religion, Local History and Fishing while the focus on Genealogy provides an important help with the researching of individuals and families.
