The Guardian of the Peace

The Garda Museum and Archives takes its name from the Gaelic phrase, An Garda Síochána, which means "guardian of the peace." This museum focuses on the history of the Irish police force, and also displays information about policing in Ireland prior to the formation of the Garda in 1922.

The museum includes artifacts, photographs, and miscellaneous memorabilia. There are also a number of vintage police publications available, and much of the information preserved here is still used by police, historians, and academics for research. The main goal of the Garda Museum is the faithful preservation of these records and archives.
