The collection first came into being in the early-mid 1980s when the Environment and Heritage Service (now known as NIEA) opened Green Lane Museum in Roe Valley Country Park.
In the mid-1990s, Green Lane Museum’s collection came under the ownership of Limavady Borough Council.
Objects that were deemed too sensitive to be stored or displayed in Green Lane Museum (e.g. paper, textiles) were transferred to the new purpose-built museum stores built as part of the Roe Valley Arts and Cultural Centre development and are now part of the Limavady Museum's Collection.
The removal of more sensitive items from Green Lane Museum left approximately 250 objects at the museum. Today these items make up the Green Lane Museum collection.
Core collections include:
Tumbling body plough
Mobillette milking machine
Supporting Collections include:
Items relating to agricultural, industrial, domestic, commercial and community life from 19th & 20th centuries, including First and Second World Wars
Dungiven Printing press and associated materials (currently stored off-site)
Unique collection items include the Limavady and District War Memorial which lists the names of those who fought and died in the First World War and a early 20th century baker’s cart belonging to a local bakery.
