The Collection

The strength of the Museum nonetheless resides in its collection.  Chronicling the historical development of County Louth from the Stone Age up to the present, the Museum through a combination of artefacts and computer interactives presents this story over three galleries of permanent exhibition.  These exhibits include the fabled Mell flake, a piece of flint made by human hands and transported here in gravel via an ice sheet, it is the earliest artefact to have been found in Ireland.  Other exhibits include examples of rock art, as well as gun money and Oliver Cromwell’s shaving mirror!
