Ulster Folk and Transport Museum - About

Have you ever wondered what it was like to live over 100 years ago? The Folk museum can show you, literally! It is outdoors and built like a typical old Ulster town where you can actually go into houses and other buildings and experience what it was like to live in the past.

The museum illustrates the way of life of Northern Ireland, not just in built up areas but also in rural parts, where visitors can also explore.

The transport museum is definitely worth seeing as well. It boasts a huge collection of transport and has the largest railway collection in Ireland. Whether you want to be inside a life size model of a steam train, see a De Lorean DMC-12(The car from the ‘Back to the Future’ trilogy), see and learn about evolution from the horse drawn carriages to the Irish built motor cars, visit the aircraft building, or learn about the history of the Titanic, there is plenty for visitors to come and see.
