Ulster American Folk Park

Ulster American Folk Park tells the story of emigration from Ulster to America in the 18th and 19th centuries and provides visitors with a 'living history' experience on its outdoor site. Costumed demonstrators go about their everyday tasks in the traditional manner in authentically furnished Old and New World buildings.
 
The Ship and Dockside Gallery features a full-size reconstruction of an early 19th century sailing ship of the type which carried thousands of emigrants across the Atlantic and a major indoor exhibition 'Emigrants' complements the outdoor site.
 
The Centre for Migration Studies can assist those who wish to find out more about emigration history and the way of life of emigrants and settlers.
