  • Spent some time browsing the museum's temporary exhibitions covering the period of the decade of centenaries. The latest addition looking at the period 1918-23 is done tastefully, covering these turbu...  more »
  • The visit was surprisingly free of charge, we are of the opinion that the exhibition may cost money. Thank you to the two women who have shown all kinds of theoretical and practical things to the linen production and processing us in a 8-eye tour. Absolte recommendation!

  • Not wildly exciting but it was interesting to see the history of linen and the process of converting flax into fabric. We were fortuitously there when a school group was doing a guided tour and demonstration so tagged along with them. The demo on the flax gave me a new appreciation for the process to produce the linen clothes I enjoy wearing.
  • An institution and landmark in the centre of Lisburn for years, whilst the actual museum is probably much more entertaining for people who have no knowledge of Lisburn or the industrial background of Ulster, it's still worth a visit if you've never been. The cafe is pretty good, with various bakes and food available to enjoy whilst looking down Bow Street.
  • Always have from a child, has that nostalgic feeling to it great wee local museum.
  • Not suitable for easy access
  • Fabulous experience. We spent nearly 2 hours wandering around. We had a very in depth and fun explanation of the whole linen making experience from Virginia - she was amazing and full of information.
