The exhibition features rare artefacts from the band’s launch during the punk era, including lyrics, posters and their original recording contracts.
It runs until Sunday August 26.
A series of talks and celebratory events will also be held in celebration of the band’s history.
This weekend, local music venue PJ Molloys are promoting a Skids convention which invites fans to participate in Q&A sessions taking place at the adjacent galleries and library, and social events, acoustic sessions and film screenings around the town.
