Ulster American Folk Park

Follow the trail of thousands of emigrants as you journey from the thatched cottages of Ulster, across the Atlantic Ocean to the ‘New World’.


A world to excite your inner explorer.

Immerse yourself in the story of the brave emigrants who made the journey across the Atlantic to America hundreds of years ago.

Wander through the thatched cottages and log cabins and meet costumed characters who will show you traditional crafts, tell you a few stories and maybe even share a bit of their good food.

Board a full-scale emigrant ship to experience the conditions faced by many as they set sail for a new life in America. With 30 buildings and exhibits to explore, masses of things for the kids to do, the Ulster American Folk Park is a wonderfully unique experience.


ACCESSIBILITY

We regret that it is not possible to provide physical access to the upper floors of some buildings without compromising the accuracy of the historical experience. In such cases, visitors should ask to be provided with an alternative form of access, such as photographs.

A limited number of wheelchairs are available in the reception area for use in the museum. We also have a mobility scooter available on a first come first served basis.

The museum experience for all visitors to the Ulster American Folk Park places a major emphasis on the sensory experiences of touch, smell, sight and hearing. Persons with sensory impairment will find much that is appropriate to their particular needs.

Assistance Dogs are welcome.
