Carlow County Museum

Carlow County Museum is located in the Cultural Quarter of Carlow Town and is entered through Carlow Tourist Office. Over four exhibitions galleries get a snapshot of the wonderful history and heritage of the county.  View the famous and magnificent 19th century hand carved pulpit from Carlow Cathedral. The pulpit has been included in the book ‘A History of Ireland in 100 Objects’ by Fintan O’Toole, winner of the Bord Gáis Energy Irish Book Awards 2013 ‘Best Irish-published Book of the Year’. Also on view is the original gallows trapdoor from the Carlow Gaol; see the smoking pipe of Captain Myles Keogh, killed at the Battle of Little Big Horn; read about the great 19th century scientist John Tyndall who was the first man to discover the greenhouse effect.
