Ulster Folk and Transport Museum
The Ulster Folk and Transport Museum illustrates the way of life and the traditions of the people of the North of Ireland.
At the open air Folk Museum 60 acres are devoted to illustrating the way of life of people in the early 1900s. Costumed visitor guides, working buildings and exhibits all bring the stories to life. Over 50 exhibit buildings and a variety of street scenes are available for filming from town scenes to rural farming scenes, churches to industrial mills, thatched cottages to a country manor.
The Museum has provided a location for a large number of film makers over the past number of years. With 50 exhibit buildings there is ample opportunity to recreate a scene from any era.
Most recently Hot Shot production filmed the BBC series "Century Farm".
The Transport Museum boasts the most comprehensive transport collection in Ireland. The Irish Railway Collection is displayed in an award-winning gallery. Along side the Irish Railway Collection are the Road Transport Galleries. These Galleries boast a fine collection of vehicles ranging from cycles, motorcycles, trams, buses, fire engines and cars. Also, the "Titanic" exhibition and the new, exciting and interactive "Flight X2" exhibition located in the General Transport Galleries all provide interesting backdrops for filming or photo shoots.
