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.

I thought they'd be too young at 4 and 6 but they were enthused and loved it. The gentleman at the front desk was so nice and friendly towards them. Great free way to pass and hour.

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.

A small but well done museum over 3 floors with a great exhibition for the Easter 1916 celebrations. Recommended. Also free to enter which would be a bonus for those on a budget.

Great little museum with displays that respect all traditions. A joy to spend 2 hrs or more yesterday in and the staff presented me with a Monaghan 1916 commemorative calendar for free! Recommend to any visitor to Monaghan town.
