Check out the New NATIONAL SCIENCE AND ECCLESIOLOGY MUSEUM Website.

The museum has been able to develop two main collections. There is first, the large group of scientific instruments mostly associated with Nicholas Callan of which a full catalogue for this collection was published in 1994 ‘The Scientific Apparatus of Nicholas Callan & other historic instruments. The museum now has the largest collection of scientific instruments in public display in Ireland, most of which were manufactured in Ireland between 1880 and 1920 The second part of the Museum is a collection of ecclesiastical artifacts from the past three centuries of which a catalogue has also been prepared ‘St Patricks College Maynooth Museum of Ecclesiology: A catalogue of Ecclesiastivcal items spanning two centuries of the College history’ .

In September 1999 Dr N.E. McKeith was appointed museum curator, reflecting the continued interest in the museum by the Department of Experimental Physics.
