History Museum
Journey between worlds at Ulster American Folk Park, an open-air museum designed to explore the historical link between Ulster and America. The museum sheds a light on the experiences of nearly 2 million immigrants who sailed from Ulster to America between 1700 and 1900. The site is divided into two sections (Old and New World) and uses volunteers dressed in period costume to demonstrate techniques and skills used by immigrants on a daily basis, including cooking, embroidery, spinning, printing, and bread making. The park also contains the renowned Center for Migration Studies, which houses a library of over 10,000 books, maps, photographs, and periodicals.

  • Had a smashing day here, great staff and lots to keep the kids occupied.
  • We spent almost a full day here with the kids (early teens). The folk park is very interesting and provides a nice journey experience from Ulster to the new world. Highly recommended.
  • Really good day out for all ages.
  • You will learn here is very much about Irish history during the famine. You walk into an open air museum along the Irish past to a America. During this walk you also create knowledge with a ship where people used to with it went to America, and sees the bitter conditions on board. Take a look in the past.
