Walk in the footsteps of bold Irish migrants who set sail for America in the 18th and 19th centuries. Learn more about the life they left behind and the hardships they endured on the journey. Wander the well-trodden pathways of rural Ulster, complete with a bustling street and welcoming farmhouses. Board the Brig Union ship and experience the cramped quarters where hundreds of people lived during their twelve-week Atlantic crossing. Emerge from the crossing and learn how our resourceful ancestors created new lives in a new land.
If you're visiting soon, pass no remarks on the maintenance work going on inside the Visitor Centre, you can still get access to get tickets and start your journey around the museum and access the café.
Visit new exhibitions, take part in family activities and seasonal events, or discover how to enjoy the museum from the comfort of your own home!See What's On
