General information

The Folk Museum tells the story of life in early 20th century Ulster. A bygone era is recreated in a rural landscape of farms, cottages, traditional crops and local breeds of livestock. The Transport Museum creatively displays one of Europe’s largest and most comprehensive transport collections in our permanent galleries. From horse-drawn carriages to Irish built motor cars and from the mighty steam locomotives that graced our railways to the history of ship and aircraft building, the permanent galleries are well worth a visit.

Thanks to Alastair Hunter for adding this Museum via our form.
