A brand new extension housing the Downpatrick High Cross and many other treasures was officially opened in September 2015 at Down County Museum, a historic gaol converted into a museum in 1981, and operated by Newry, Mourne and Down District Council.

The new facility includes three stunning new exhibitions and a new tea room with a fabulous view of Down Cathedral at the rear of the Museum complex.
