About

Journey back in time at the Ulster American Folk Park, from Ulster to 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, experience what the cramped quarters were like on the dangerous journey to America, and find out how Ulster peoples emigration had a lasting impact through North America.  

Don’t miss the traditional craft demonstrations by the 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!

*Please note, we cannot guarantee which demonstrations will be on any given day.

Food & Drink
Lilly Annes café is open during museum hours offering a wide selection of hot and cold food and refreshments including sandwiches, soup, panini's and wraps. Picnic tables are located around the perimeter of the main public car park. Food and drink items are not allowed in our galleries.

Gift Shop
The main gift shop in the Ulster American Folk Park is open to all. We have a wide range of gifts inspired by our collections. These include books, toys and souvenirs. Why not take a trip down memory lane in O’Doherty’s shop on Ulster Street and ask for a quarter of sweets, weighed out in the traditional way by a guide in costume?

Not to be missed locations include:
Emigrants Gallery, Mellon Homestead, Campbell House, Hughes House, Ulster Street, Ship & Dockside Gallery, American Street, Samuel Fulton Stone House, West Pennsylvania Log House, Tennessee Rogan Plantation House.
