Monaghan County Museum collects, records, preserves, interprets and displays the rich cultural heritage of County Monaghan.

The collection consists of over 50,000 objects, which help to tell the story of the county from the end of the last Ice Age to the present day.

Every object tells part of that story, so please enjoy this brief tour through some of the many wonderful pieces on display at the museum.
