Journey back in time at the Ulster American Folk Park, from the Old World of Ulster to the New World of America.
Wander the well-trodden pathways and traditional farmhouses, learning what life was like in rural Ulster. Step on-board the full-scale emigrant ship and experience what the cramped quarters were like on the dangerous journey to America. Emerge into the ‘New world’ and find out how Ulster peoples emigration had an impact through North America.
Don’t miss the traditional craft demonstrations by talented costumed guides, from wool spinning to willow weaving*. To make the most of your visit we recommend you give yourself between 2 and 3 hours to explore all that the museum has to offer, including the ‘Bad Bridget’ exhibition shining a light on the heart-wrenching tales of women who emigrated from 1838 to 1918.
Visit the Ulster American Folk Park website to browse the fantastic range of exhibitions and events currently on!
