Donegal County Museum shows a diverse series of exhibitions ranging from both In-house to travelling. Our aim is to cater to a wide spectrum of visitors by housing exhibitions that relate both locally, nationally and internationally.

On your visit to the museum, the exhibition in the first floor gallery tells the story of Donegal from Prehistory to the Twentieth century.

In the ground floor gallery we hold a series of temporary exhibitions throughout the year, which cover a wide range of topics.
