The Station House Museum Home


  The Station House Museum in Clifden, Connemara, Ireland, provides
visitors with a history of the Connemara Pony which is portrayed in photo-
graphs, documents, memorabilia and artefacts. The collection includes a 
side car, a box cart, a trap and sets of harness. A computer and video facility
have recently been installed. The computer enables visitors to access the
Stud Book and to produce various reports about their own pony. An interna-
tional library of journals and stud books is being assembled.
  In the gallery above the pony exhibition, further Clifden history concerning
the railway and Alcock and Brown - the first successful transatlantic flight -
will soon be on display.
