Nestling on the edge of Garvagh forest, Garvagh Museum is one of the region’s best kept secrets, the largest permanently displayed museum collection in the borough. A treasure trove of objects and images from a bygone age. Exhibits range from the Neolithic to the twentieth century. A truly unique and unforgettable museum experience.

It really is Ulster’s most surprising museum.

The museum's collections cover many aspects of rural and domestic life in the 19th and early 20th Centuries. Including a blacksmith's shop and displays of horse-drawn agricultural machinery, Stone Age artefacts from the Bann Valley, Boat from nearby eel fishery and farming implements, plus Jaunting car and Victoriana.

The museum offers a bespoke genealogical research assistance, for family history inquiries.

Wheelchair access.

Garvagh Museum is supported by Causeway Coast and Glens Council.
