Description

Immerse yourself in the story of Irish emigration at the museum that brings it to life.

Walk in the footsteps of the bold migrants who set sail for the New World in the 18th and 19th centuries. Wander the well-trodden pathways of rural Ulster at your leisure, complete with a bustling street and welcoming farmhouses, before boarding the Brig Union ship and emerging in the New World to marvel at life on the American Frontier. Learn about people's daily routines and activities in both the Old and New Worlds and discover historic buildings, including the famous Mellon Homestead, as well as buildings from America, which have been relocated to the museum.

The Ulster American Folk Park has been awarded the ‘We’re Good to Go’ industry standard mark, certifying that it is adhering to the respective Government and public health guidance regarding Covid-19 and has the required processes in place.

Visitors are advised to pre-book their tickets online.

The Loaf Café is open but with reduced capacity and social distancing measures in place and the cloakroom will remain closed for now.
