History Museum Historic Site
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. Put Ulster American Folk Park at the forefront of your travel plans using our Omagh itinerary maker.

  • Great family day out. Would highly recommend it. Please note, the park is closed on Mondays except for bank holidays
  • Fantastic day out for all the family, the people they had in the houses added to the fun, they told storys about the people that lived in the houses years ago (even tho they had probably told the same storys a million times to everyone that passed though they told the storys with great passion) I havent been here sice i was a kid and took my 5 year old girl here last week and she absolutely loved it (especially meeting the folks in the houses) The home made soda bread still smells and tasts unbelievable! This place is a great interactive museum and brings you into a compmetly different country just by walking through a door..love this place!
  • Always a great visit experiencing open air living history. Well worth a visit
  • 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.
