Enjoyed a great day out on Easter Tuesday. The theme for the Easter celebrations was a Spring Fair in April 1917 and the staff and volunteers certainly conveyed the theme well. Highlights were the horse and cart rides, the blacksmith was good craic, the Ulster street fight having to be broken up by the RIC officer and the Punch and... More

As always theses places are expensive to enter but we spent a pleasant 3 hours waking around and exploring the houses of this open air museum. Quite interactive and informative with plenty of historical features.

We went for the day on Easter Sunday and had a good time. The museum is very interactive with lots to see and do. We really enjoyed it and would recommend a visit. Cafe service was very slow.

This is by far one of the best museums in the island of Ireland. I remember coming here as a child but it has expanded considerably since then. Our visit was on Easter Sunday & it suits both good and mixed weather. There is also an excellent centre for Immigration Studies. Cafe needs to be upgraded to cater for healthy... More

Had a few hours free after a business trip and decided to visit. Staff couldn't have been nicer. Excellent shop and cafeteria. The indoor exhibition is very informative and gives a great insight into life in the North during the potato famine. Also links with America explained well. The outdoor exhibits are all within walking distance and wheelchair accessible although... More

Firstly, while I say I visited in September of 2016, I need to say I cannot remember which month my partner and I visited last year. 2016 was my 3rd visit to Ulster American Folk Park. This Park enthralls from the moment you enter the Museum for both adult and child alike. Replicas of items used in bygone Pioneer trail... More

Visited today with my mother and my two children 3 & 5 years. We all had a great day, cold though but I will most definitely return in the warmer weather. Paid a visit to the cafe first as we were arriving at lunch time. Very quiet inside and was served immediately, food was disappointing though. The cafe was very... More
