The Tullow Museum is housed in an attractive, small stone, former church at the Slaney River Bridge, in County Carlow. It displays a splendid collection of material detailing the region of Tullow's history.

The Tullow Museum is located on Bridge Street in Tullow Town County Carlow. The museum is operated on a voluntary basis by the Tullowphelim Historical Society.

The museum houses a huge range of items of an historical nature, from personal items belonging to the antarctic explorer Sir Ernest Shackelton and Father John Murphy of Boulavogue, who led insurgents from the 1798 rebellion and was executed in the Square in Tullow, to photographs, bill heads, journals and many other items from Tullow's past.
