Carlow County Museum celebrates 10 years in College Street!

Today, the Museum is ten years officially opened here in the former Presentation Convent. The Museum was officially opened on April 11th, 2012, by Phil Hogan, TD, then Minister for the Environment, Community and Local Government. Since then, the Museum has welcomed nearly 170,000 visitors.

The Museum is operated by Carlow County Council in partnership with the Carlow Historical & Archaeological Society (CHAS). It is twenty years since the County Council took over the operations of the museum and professionalised the staffing and operations.
In total the Museum is forty-eight years old, opened in December 1973 by CHAS, also on College Street before moving to the Town Hall Theatre in 1979.

The Museum was designated in 2003 by the National Museum of Ireland to collect and display archaeological objects from the county. In 2020 the Museum was awarded Interim Accreditation by the Heritage Council under the Museums Standards Programme for Ireland (MSPI).
