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. Check online for a detailed list of the museum’s upcoming festivals and exhibitions. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Omagh holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Ulster American Folk Park and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

Lovely visit around the Folk Park. It's got a number of traditional dwellings for an insight into past living. Set in some nice grounds. Best part was the interactive nature of some of the characters. Blacksmith / seamstress etc. They would happily talk while in character and give a fascinating view of days gone by. Thoroughly enjoyable family day out.
The staff was very helpful and went well beyond my expectations. They provided multiple in house resources to look through and provided online resource links. I wish we had budgeted more time to research.
Great day out for the family, most of the paths and houses are wheelchair and buggy accessible. The buildings were interesting to see in and there was guides in a few of them talking and demonstrating life as it would of been. Give yourself plenty of time as there is plenty to see and do.
Fantastic day out, especially if you're into history. Set in an area of outstanding natural beauty, great day out for all ages and capabilities
Booked 4th July event on line and received an email stating that we had to be at the park for 09.00. We live around 2 hours drive away and after a very early morning start arrived at the park at 8.45 to learn that the park didn't actually open until 10am. We had visited the park about 9 years ago and as it was my daughters Birthday on the 4th July I thought it would be a good birthday treat. I was disappointed to see that the park hadn't really been updated from our previous visit. Enjoyed the initial visit but not a park I would revisit again.
