History Museums

When planning your visit, keep in mind that our most popular museums take a full day to explore. Or why not plan your break around museums within a single area. For example, consider the Sperrins, with their archaeological and environmental riches, the Walled City of Derry, the Ulster Folk and Transport Museum and follow the epic story of the Titanic, or Armagh City a museum in itself!
