The Ulster Folk and Transport Museum, voted Irish Museum of the Year, illustrates the way of life and the traditions of the people of the north of Ireland. Set in over 170 acres of rolling countryside, the outdoor Folk Museum tells the story of life in early 20th century Ulster. Almost 50 exhibits have been acquired by the Museum from all over Ulster and restored and authentically furnished. The Open Air Museum is complemented by the Folk Galleries which show how food, farming, everyday occupations and lifestyles have changed through time. The Transport Museum, one of the finest in Europe, displays Ireland's largest and most comprehensive Transport collection, from horse-drawn carts to Irish built motor cars, and from the mighty steam locomotives that graced our railways to the history of ship and aircraft building. Permanent exhibitions of international acclaim also include Titanic and X2 Flight Experience. The collection illustrates the history of all of the forms of transport used throughout Ireland. It covers the complete time span from the earliest recorded modes of transport through to the present day, and includes all forms of visual, oral or three-dimensional evidence.
