Opened in 1974, the Museum has been widely acclaimed for its commitment in displaying Monaghan's rich culture and heritage. Archaeology, Local History, Folk Life, Crafts, Transport, Coinage and Industry are among the principal areas of interest. Two of the Museum's most prominent awards have been the coveted Council of Europe Museum Prize in 1980 and the Gulbenkian - Norwich Union Award for Best Collections Care in 1993.
