Step back in time and experience what life was like in Ulster over 100 years ago

***Update Friday 16 October 2020, 3pm Following further guidelines from the NI Executive, in response to the most recent public health update, the Ulster Folk Museum will close from 5pm today for a planned four week period.  The safety of our visitors and staff and the health and wellbeing of our community is our priority. If you’ve booked tickets to visit this weekend the Ulster Folk Museum will be in touch.***

Wander through the beautiful parkland of the Ulster Folk Museum, where you will encounter costumed locals demonstrating traditional crafts in cottages, farm dwellings, schools, and shops.

Experience bygone life-styles in Ballycultra, the unique Ulster town reconstructed on 60 acres where costumed guides and craft-workers make you feel at home.

There is a varied programme of events all-year-round, with exciting special seasonal events.

Why not visit the Ulster Transport Museum, located just across the road.
