The Celtic Sacred Items, Anatholic Sacred Objects and Culture Collection comprises items such as stone vessels, pottery, incense and wood-burning stoves.
There are more than 300 objects that are found in Celtic archaeological sites worldwide, with most being from ancient times.
These include objects from the early Roman period, including stonework from the site of Pompeii, a pottery from the Stone Age sites of Cretan and Anglesey and the remains of wooden stoves and vessels.
The collection was founded in 2000 and consists of about 20,000 objects, according to the collection manager, James D. McEvoy.
Most are in England and Ireland, but the rest are from across Europe, Asia and Africa.
“There’s a very good reason why the collection is so big, and that’s because these objects are the best preserved in the world,” McEvow told ABC News.
“The artifacts we have are so rare, they’re so important, and we have a long-term mission to preserve and preserve the cultural heritage that is so important to people from around the world.”
The collection has grown to about 1,200 items and is maintained by the Royal Ulster Museum, according the Celtic Cultural Centre in London.
“They’re the objects that you get when you buy a lot of art and a lot and you don’t know what it is you’re going to get, and then you find these beautiful things,” McDevow said.
The Royal Ulster museum is the custodian of the collection.
It manages the collection and the Royal Museum of Ireland.
The collection is not the only museum in Ireland that holds the objects, however, there are several others that are managed by different institutions in the country.
The museum said the collection was the largest of its kind in Europe, with a total of more than 2.5 million items.
The Royal Ulster collection was formed in the early 19th century, and was opened to the public in 1891.
The objects are on display at the museum until June 30.
