LEARN MORE ABOUT NORTHERN IRISH HISTORY WITH THIS DOUBLE MUSEUM

The Ulster Folk and Transport Museum, located just outside Belfast, is part of the National Museums Northern Ireland, making it one of the foremost attractions for visitors.

While it comprises two different museums, the Folk Museum and the Transport Museum, together it explores the history of Ireland from past to present.

The Folk Museum is an open-air museum where visitors can stroll through old buildings that depict rural life in Ireland. It includes dwellings such as cottages, farms, shops, and churches, many of which have been collected from around the country and rebuilt here.

Families will love this attraction as the museum hosts regular activities such as open-hearth cooking and traditional Irish crafts demonstrations.

Another interesting element is its library which contains over 15,000 volumes and an archive of the various Ulster dialects.

The Transport Museum explores land, sea and air modes of transports. Encompassing one of the most comprehensive transport collections in Europe, you can view locomotives, vintage motorbikes and old-timey cars among many others.

Here, visitors can learn about Ireland’s transport history, explore the largest railway collection in Ireland, and visit the permanent Titanic exhibition. Don’t miss out on the pièce de résistance, the DMC DeLorean, made famous by the movie Back to the Future.
