Located at The Square, Roscommon Town, the museum has a unique collection of artifacts relating to the history of the county, the town and its people. Formerly a Presbyterian Church, it was built in the 1860s. A collection of horse drawn farm machinery is also displayed in a yard behind the museum.
Items on display include a ninth century inscribed slab from St. Coman’s foundation, Church street Roscommon, a replica of the Cross of Cong with the inscription “made in Roscommon”, and a superb example of a “Sheela na Gig” figure from Rahara.
The Museum is open all year and serves as our Tourist Office.
