This free museum gives you a good idea of the history of the city. Everything is set-up very nicely.

“Interesting Hour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2012

Not the worlds best Museum but for a small city quite interesting. They had a "music/cinema" exhibition on when I visited which was an interesting insight into the entertainment in Galway in times past. Lots of antiquities dug at various times around Galway on exhibition. There was also an exhibition by a Spanish artist which while not to my taste was in keeping with the "spanish arch" next door.

“Nice Building”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2012

Much of the exhibit space was devoted to a single artist which was a bit of a disappointment. It was free but why not devote a bit more space to local history or the fishing fleet.

“Museum worth visiting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

The Galway City Museum is not very big but it is very interesting, free admission, and a fantastic view from the third floor. Worth a visit when you are at the Spanish Arche.
