About

In order to ensure a safe environment for our visitors, we will have to manage the number of people visiting the museums at any one time. To avoid disappointment and for safety reasons we will be encouraging visitors to pre-book tickets and timeslots online.

Explore thatched cottages, farms, schools and shops as you experience life from over 100 years ago. Set in over 170 acres of rolling countryside overlooking Belfast Lough, chat to a costumed visitor guide, admire traditional crafts and meet farm animals.

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 permanent galleries are well worth a visit.
