How much is admission?

You’re in luck! Nothing at all! Admission to the experience is completely free of charge, however any donation is very much appreciated.

Monaghan County Museum opened its doors to the public in 1974 becoming the first full time staffed, local authority funded museum in the Republic of Ireland. The Museum has been widely acclaimed for its commitment in displaying Monaghan’s rich culture and heritage.  The Museum was originally housed in the Courthouse in the centre of town; however, following a fire which gutted the building in 1981 the collection was rescued and temporarily moved to the Christian Brothers Secondary School. It was stored there temporarily, and a limited display was continued until the move to Hill Street in August 1986.
