Coleraine Museum

Welcome to Coleraine Museum

The Diamond – Coleraine – Co. Londonderry – BT52 1DE

Coleraine Town Hall, built in 1859, is Coleraine Museum’s accredited exhibition venue. Coleraine Museum at Coleraine Town Hall is open for over 6 months of the year. Here, visitors can begin to explore ‘Irish History Starts Here’ with its story of Mountsandel – the first settlement in Ireland nearly 10,000 years ago, and the history of Coleraine as the first Planted town 400 years ago. With an extensive collection supporting a rich and important history, different themes from the collection are explored through a range of temporary exhibitions. In the absence of a permanent museum venue for visitors, an appointment can be made with Museum Services to explore other parts of the collection. The iconic listed building in the town centre also houses the Visitor Information Centre and other community cultural events.
