Discover Galway City Museum’s New Accessible Website

The Galway City Museum’s website is new and improved!
A new accessible page is officially up and running for the museum. Here are the key updates that will make navigation so much easier.

The new website grants easier access to the services the museum provides to the community. From past and present exhibitions to community initiatives, their online access is reaching further and further!

This is an exciting update that welcomes all service users, with a focus on those with disabilities. The goal of this update is to create a space for everyone to be able to experience what the museum has to offer.

Corrib Walking Trail

A brand new Corrib Walking Trail is live on the site. Embark on a journey along the Corrib! This interactive map will bring you face to face with the real life site of each fantastical story outlined in the exhibition and illustrated so beautifully by artist, Sadie Cramer. Learn about the folklore and history of our beautiful waterway!

The Corrib, Myth, Legend & Folklore exhibition is now available for viewing on the museum website as an online exhibition.

Virtual Gallery Experience

A new virtual gallery of past and present exhibitions is now available on the website including a 360 degree virtual tour, funded through the Heritage Council grant.
The Galway Migrant project, Keepsakes and Tamara Eckhardt’s The Children of Carrowbrowne, an outdoor photographic exhibition depicting the lives of Galway Traveller children, are now both displayed on the homepage of the new website.

Onsite Updates

Online or in person, The Galway City Museum is always striving to make it a great experience for everyone. Taking that into consideration, a new Sensory Room for children has been added, located in the MONUMENT gallery. With the visually impaired in mind, large print labels have also been added to galleries inside. These labels are found in the Keepers of the Gael gallery, soon to be rolled out for other galleries.
