Clare – County Museum

Clare County Museum

 

Clare County  Museum, is located in a beautifully restored former convent built by the Sisters of Mercy congregation in 1861. The museum exhibition “The Riches of Clare: its people, place and treasures,” occupies two galleries and incorporates the traditional method of displaying original artefacts from the county with modern interpretive tools such as colourful display panels, audio visual and computer interactive presentations, models, some replicas and commissioned art pieces.

The collection comprises a large display of archaeological material of local provenance on loan from the National Museum of Ireland, the De Valera Museum collection transferred from the County Library, and locally collected artefacts never seen before in public.
