Armagh County Museum is located on the Mall, an area of urban parkland in the centre of the city. The unique character of the Museum's architecture makes it one of the most distinctive buildings in Armagh, similar in appearance to a little Greek temple. The oldest County Museum in Ireland, its extensive collections are based on specimens gathered by the Armagh Natural History and Philosophical Sociey during the 19th century.
