Letterkenny Accommodation - Donegal County Museum

Telephone 074 9124613

Donegal County Museum was first opened to the public in 1987 and is housed in what was once the Warden's house of the Letterkenny Workhouse, which was opened in 1845. In 1990/91 the existing Museum building was renovated and an
extension built. Further renovations were undertaken between 1999 and 2000. The Museum contains two galleries, workshop, storage area and offices.

The role of Donegal County Museum is to collect, record, preserve, communicate and display for the use and enjoyment of the widest community possible, the material evidence and associated information of the history of Donegal.

Donegal County Museum preserves and celebrates the collective memory of the county and its communities, through the preservation, display and interpretation of artefacts. It aims to make the community live through the objects. It aims to be a dynamic, social, cultural institution which serves all of its communities - adult, child, unwaged, elderly, disabled, as well as people of all creeds and opinions, and to have an overt sense of purpose which will encourage all to learn and to understand the past through museum objects.

The Museum holds a substantial collection of original artefacts representing the history of County Donegal and covering subjects such as archaeology, history, social history and folk life.

The Museum has two exhibition galleries. The first floor gallery contains artefacts which  relate the history of Donegal from the prehistoric period to the present day.  On the ground floor the Museum holds a wide variety of temporary exhibitions.
