Description

Explore thatched cottages, farms, schools and shops as you experience life from over 100 years ago.

A museum of international renown, the Ulster Folk & Transport Museum is regarded as being amongst the best of its kind in the world. Set in over 170 acres of rolling landscape overlooking Belfast Lough, visitors can wander through the past and discover how people lived and travelled over the centuries.

Climb on and off majestic steam locomotives or experience the sensation of flight in the Transport Museum, bursting with horse drawn carriages, electric trams, motorbikes, fire-engines and vintage cars. 'Discovery Farm' at the Folk Museum also provides a living history experience portraying daily life on the farms of 100 years ago.

'Discovery Farm' at the Folk Museum provides a living history experience portraying daily life on the farms of 100 years ago. Meet the people who lived on the land, visit the blacksmith in the forge, help feed the hens as they wander around the farmyard,  meet the donkeys, pigs and goats, or have a taste of what's cooking in the farmhouse kitchen.

From country cooking to butter making, sheep shearing and spinning to horse grooming, Discovery Farm offers visitors the chance to see and participate in living history at its best.
