GAA Museum

THE HEART & SOUL

 A trip to Croke Park simply wouldn’t be complete without experiencing the treasured GAA Museum. Get ready to immerse yourself in the spine-tingling and completely unique story of Gaelic games from ancient times to the present day. 

This museum is like no other sporting museum you’ll ever visit. It not only celebrates the history of Ireland’s national games, it also vividly brings to life how the GAA has contributed to our cultural, social and sporting heritage. 

Featured exhibitions include the original Sam Maguire and Liam MacCarthy Cups, the rousing Hall of Fame, and a whole floor dedicated to the games as they are today. When you’re done exploring, get a taste of the action in the popular Interactive Games Zone, where you can test your hurling and Gaelic football skills!

GAA Museum Opening Times

Monday - Saturday 9am to 5pm
Sunday 10am to 5pm

 

Access to the GAA Museum and the new ‘Remembering Bloody Sunday’ exhibition are complementary after your tour. For later tours, we recommend you come to the museum in advance of your tour, as the museum closes at 5.00pm. Due to Covid-19 procedures, this museum visit is limited to 30 minutes.

We also have museum-only tickets available daily every half hour from 10am to 4pm. Places are limited to allow for social distancing, with a maximum stay of one hour. Tickets must be booked online in advance.
