The former railway station, once the hub of activity in the life of Kiltimagh, became a derelict area after the railway finally closed in November, 1975. As the point of departure for so many of our emigrants, it has always held a special place in our affections. The area has since been tastefully restored and now boasts a wonderful sculpture park, the result of a sculpture symposium held during the summer of 1993, where sculptors of national renown, assisted by local students, completed the transformation of this delightful area.
The Town Museum and Music School are located here. Two old railway carriages are incorporated into the museum, once the goods store. This museum houses many artifacts and lore of bygone years. Also celebrated here are the distinguised careers of many of our former inhabitants whose achievements contributed to our pride and confidence in Kiltimagh. The former station master’s house is now the Mayo School of Music.
The museum is available to visit by appointment.
