Ulster American Folk Park
Ulster American Folk Park, Situated at the bottom of the Sperrin
Mountains on the banks of the River, is a remarkable museum
reflecting the story of the 19th century Irish folks.
This living museum re-creates the experiences of Ulster folk,
with reconstructions of dwellings on this side of the Atlantic
and in the New World.
The museum is approximately one and a half hours from Belfast
(Take the M1 route).
The sounds of the creaking timbers and the foul smells and
the indoor museum exhibition provide an insight into the treacherous
conditions experienced by many thousands of emigrants.
It displays some interesting artifacts from both sides of
the Atlantic and explaining reasons for leaving Ireland and
the opportunities open to emigrants in a new land.
No doubt it reveals a Living History to bring the past to
life, making visitors rarely forget.

the doomed liner.
