Family Fun at Ulster Transport Museum


Take some time out from the hustle and bustle of December madness and enjoy some festive fun at the Ulster Transport Museum.

Follow a bespoke winter trail around our rail, road, sea and sky collections as we inspire the designers, engineers and adventurers of the future. Watch footage of how Christmas used to be celebrated in times gone by and take a selfie with our majestic steam locomotives, adorned with traditional Christmas decorations.

Join us on Saturdays and Sundays in December for our children's Christmas activities that are sure to put the entire family in the festive mood.

Don't forget to visit our museum shop to pick up your last minute stocking fillers, Christmas decorations and transport themed gifts.
